The BFS-VRM 03 HP from PicoLAS is a high-speed laser diode driver that has an output current of up to 3 A for pulsed operation and 0.5 A for continuous-wave operation. It delivers sufficient power to overdrive single-mode diodes for short-duration pulses. This diode driver has a pulse duration of 1 ns, a minimum rise time of 1 ns, and a repetition rate of up to 400 MHz. The BFS-VRM 03 HP has an integrated TEC driver and a digital control interface. It is available in a butterfly package that measures 65 X 85 X 15 mm and is ideal for seed applications, DVD-Disk mastering, and printing applications.
