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 ³90% 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
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
