iC-Haus expands its product family in the field of laser diode drivers: The new iC-HN device family is suitable for extremely fast control of laser diodes with short pulses of down to only two nanoseconds. Possible fields of laser applications for the iC-HN family are various: In addition to optical image recognition and object detection, the laser drivers are also suitable for applications in robotics, LiDAR, and augmented and virtual reality.
Having only eight ports and a small 3 mm DFN package, the iC-HN family best meets the requirements for a space-saving and highly integrated layout of laser control electronics. The permissible supply voltage of the laser diodes can be as high as 30 V. The laser driver iC can therefore also be used for a free and flexible circuitry of several or different laser diodes. The current setting of up to 2.8 A is generated via a control voltage input, which in turn can be controlled by an LVDS signal with short pulses up to 2 ns.
