Reflow Compatible Low Noise Laser Diode Driver for RoHS Compliance

January 15, 2009

SMT Made Easier and More Efficient with OEM Package Upgrade

The low noise FL500 Laser Diode Driver was recently re-engineered to integrate with higher temperature RoHS-compliant manufacturing processes. It is now compatible with reflow processing less than 250°C.

This surface mount chip is ideal for OEM instrumentation. It offers exceptionally low noise laser diode control that can be configured either as two independent 250mA drivers or a single 500mA driver. The FL500 can run on a +3V Lithium-ion battery or up to a +12V power supply. Small size, low noise and modest power requirements make it the choice for handheld precision laser instrumentation.
