Product information "Laser Diode Driver FL500 on Eval Board with USB - FL593FL"
The FL593 brings Wavelength’s low noise FL500 laser diode driver under USB computer control. This full speed USB controller comes with a robust driver, a simple WindowsTM control interface, and an easy-to-use development API for rapidly building custom applications. On-board nonvolatile memory holds operational settings. Download a configuration, then disconnect the FL593 from the PC and it continues operating – standalone. Or use USB hubs to control multiple units from a single computer USB port. This adaptable module is ideal for remotely controlling multiple laser diodes – such as burn-in racks, L-I characterization systems, etc. Setpoint, current limit, channel tracking and feedback mode settings are all under computer control. Optional analog inputs facilitate up to 500 kHz modulation in Constant Current mode.
