LDP-V ultra compact short pulse drivers

For applications in which high power pulsed laser diodes are utilised in a compact environment, Laser Components is proud to supply an extensive range of driver modules.

Depending on the pulsing requirement and operating conditions of the pulsed laser diode itself, we can provide drivers from the “LDP-V” series with pulse widths as low as 1ns. Different models can accommodate peak output powers as high as 24kW with the more powerful units in the range exhibiting footprints of less than 9 x 5cm and the smallest units coming in at an incredibly small 4 x 2cm - perfect as OEM solutions where the space budget is tight.

High power modules incorporate built-in base plate heat sinks as standard and all drivers are compatible with most typical package types associated with common pulsed laser diodes.
