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
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
