Intelligent Laser Diode Drivers

A laser diode driver

SRL has developed compact laser diode drivers that incorporates fault sensing intelligence to help improve laser diode lifetime when operating at high power.
The SRL driver with fault protection has shown laser diode lifetime improvements of up to a factor of 10 at high optical power operation of 100W/laser bar-cm and above. The SRL driver has also demonstrated specific power densities of 7 kW/kg and 10 kW/liter, respectively at average power levels approaching 5 kW.

SRL is pursuing driver designs that will deliver up to 20 kW/kg specific power for applications requiring compact size and weight.
