This laser driver is an electronic module designed for driving diode lasers with up to 1A constant current, high efficiency, low noise, high reliability, zero EMI, and small package. It provides these the functions: laser constant current control, laser current monitoring, over current and thermal protection, laser current control indication, laser diode status indication, soft start, and shut down.
It comes with a high stability low noise 2.5V voltage reference output which can be used for setting the output current. The reference output can also be used for the ADCs (Analog to Digital Converters) and/or DACs (Digital to Analog Converters).
High Efficiency: ≥ 90% Maximum Output Current: 1A 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.
