SLED DRIVER BOARDS

HIGH-PERFORMANCE DRIVER BOARDS FOR OEM AND R&D DEVELOPMENT

EXALOS provides low-noise, ultra-stable RGB and NIR Driver Boards, optimized for interferometric applications like OCT or fiber sensing.

The Driver Boards are high-performance analog driver boards that consists of a multi-layer PCB board with a multi-pin connector to which adapter boards can be connected supporting various types of optical modules, for example 14-pin butterfly (BTF), 14-pin dual-in-line (DIL), transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA) or others.

EXALOS driver boards deliver ultra-stable low-noise performance for both OEM and R&D applications. The cost-effective OEM version of the driver board allows customers to reduce their R&D spending, improve time-to-market and reduce the number of suppliers. New 3-channel RGB and NIR Driver Boards are equipped with USB remote programming interface and current modulation.

The R&D driver boards feature a display board to control the most important SLED parameters. EXALOS driver boards are especially designed to handle noisy, spiky or unstable supply voltages.

Applications

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
  • Biomedical Imaging
  • Industrial metrology
  • Optical Sensing
  • Spectroscopy
