Laser Diode Controller

VueMetrix (Sunnyvale, CA) has released the Vue-LV-15, a 15A high performance, low-cost laser diode controller based on a powerful microprocessor and proprietary current control algorithm. The Vue-LV-15 features an all digital control system that uses a precise crystal oscillator time base for direct computer control of its switching power stage. A patent-pending software algorithm produces extremely low noise current without dangerous overshoots or start-up delays. The Vue-LV-15 is available as an OEM PCB-only option or as an OEM starter kit.

Fiber Coupled Laser Modules

FiberLight fiber coupled laser modules from Modulight (San Jose, CA) are for applications in medical, industrial, defense, and research activities. The FiberLight products are based on the company’s broad-area laser bars, from which the laser emission is coupled to a single output fiber with high efficiency. FiberLight can embed all the company’s high-power laser arrays, offering broad wavelength and power level coverage. The compact size and flexible fiber output enable integration into modular, multi-laser array designs hosting 3, 6, or 9 laser arrays. The module is offered in conduction cooled and water cooled versions.

Test Control and Measurement Software

Jacobs Technology Group, Tullahoma, TN, offers Test SLATE test control and measurement software that enables users to create a data acquisition and test automation program using point-and-click Windows-based graphical tools on any PC. Data is visually presented in the style and format chosen by the user, and the display format and content may be modified on the fly using drag-and-drop graphics. It is composed of off-the-shelf components such as National Instruments’ LabVIEW and Microsoft’s SQL Server Express. The software supervises all control and measurement activities in automated testing using solutions as simple as a single PC, to multi-system networked architectures. The program coordinates control and measurement functions from multiple vendors’ hardware, and can take hundreds of measurements simultaneously. The system is designed for applications in aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing, but is adaptable to environmental test and measurement applications, automating and collecting data for conditions such as wind, moisture, speed, temperature, and pressure.
