Laser diode pulse driver iC-NZN allows CW operation of laser diodes and spike-free switching with defined current pulses up to 155 MHz. The optical output power of the laser diode is set-up by means of an external resistor (RMD/PMD). For laser current control without a monitor diode, the laser current monitor at pin IMON is utilised.
A current limit can be set by means of an external resistor at pin RSI.
Setting pin NSLP low, the iC enters a low consumption sleep-mode (< 50 µA typ.).
