San Francisco, CA - Highland Technology has introduced the T165 laser pulser that incorporates an edge-triggered pulse generator with 150 ps nominal rise and fall times into a butterfly or TO-packaged laser. The 2" by 2" design connects directly to standard 0.1" pin-pitch butterfly laser packages, making it good for OEM use in laser systems.
Laser current, bias, and pulse widths are settable with onboard trimpots or by external analog inputs. The built-in edge-triggered pulse generator is adjustable from 200 ps to 2 ns. Pulsed laser current is adjustable up to 750 mA with heat sinking required above 400 mA.
Power is supplied via standard 5 V micro-USB power supply or through ribbon cable interface connector. Optional TTL or LVDS/PECL/CML trigger. Optional spring sockets for non-butterfly laser packages. The T165 is the first in Highland’s expanding line of OEM laser drivers.
