The BFS-VRM 03 LP from PicoLAS GmbH is a Laser Diode Driver that delivers an output current of 0 - 3 A (pulse) or 0.5 A (CW). It has a current noise of 3 % and an overshoot of 5 %. This laser diode driver has analog modulation of up to 25 MHz and a full-scale current settling time of less than 15 ns. It requires a current setting input of 0 - 1000 mV and monitor current of 4.8 A/V. This laser diode driver has a TEC controller that consumes 1.2 A of current and requires a TEC voltage of less than 2.3 V.
The BFS-VRM 03 LP features a laser fire of 500 ns TTL (retriggerable Monoflop, back facet monitor). It requires a DC laser voltage & TEC voltage of 5 V and consumes 12 W of power. This LDD can be controlled via RS-232 TEC setpoint and has a TEC stability of up to 0.001 K. It is available in a module that measures 65 x 85 x 15 mm and is ideal for DVD-Disk mastering, seed, and printing applications.
