The LDA1-CP1 is an electronic module designed for driving diode lasers (P type) with well controlled and monitored driving current and output laser power. Its PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) output stage achieves 90% high power efficiency, eliminating the need for a heat sink. The output current and laser power can be set linearly by two separate input voltages and monitored linearly at the same time by two output voltages respectively. It comes with a high stability low noise 2.5V reference voltage which can be used for setting the output current and as voltage references for external ADCs and DACs.
There are two versions: the LDA1-CP1-D-SNI and the LDA1-CP1-D-SNO. The former one represents that the external signal synchronizes the signal of the chip, and the latter one is that the signal of the chip synchronizes the external signal.
High Efficiency: ≥90% Maximum Output Current: 2A No Heat Sink Required Current and Power Programming, Modulation & Monitoring Capabilities. Current Output Noise: 0.05% High Stability: 100ppm/°C Zero EMI Compact Size DIP Package Available 100 % Lead (Pb)-free and RoHS Compliant
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
