The PLD10K-CH drives up to 10Amps of very stable current optimized to safely power a laser diode. This compact driver can be paired with another to drive up to 20 Amps.
Application Note AN-LD06 describes how to do this in Constant Current Mode with both laser diode and control electronics operated at 5V. No parts internal to the PLD10K-CH need to be modified.
For higher compliance voltage operation or operation in Constant Power Mode, please contact the factory.
