OSI Laser Diode Introduces 1625 nm High-Power (350 mW, typical), Pulsed Laser Diode Module for Optical Testing

New 1625 nm pulsed laser diode module will be showcased in OSI Laser Diode’s booth # 2501 at OFC Technical Exposition, March 24 - 26, 2015, Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, Calif.

March 12, 2015 - Edison, NJ - OSI Laser Diode, Inc. (LDI), an OSI Systems Company, introduces the SCW 1632-350R, a high-power, pulsed laser diode module for optical testing applications. Housed in a 14-pin butterfly package, the new ridge waveguide (RWG) Fabry-Perot (FP) laser diode is optically coupled to a single-mode fiber (SMF) pigtail and includes a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and an electrically-isolated temperature-sensing thermistor. Ideal for applications where high peak pulsed optical power is required, the new device is specifically designed for use in optical spectrum analyzers (OSAs) and optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs). The higher power gives the OTDR manufacturer greater dynamic range capability.


OSI Laser Diode's SCW 1632-350R operates at 1625 nm and features optical power of 350 mW (typically). It joins the family of high-power pulsed laser diode modules, including the previously introduced SCW 1532-500R that operates at 1550 nm and features higher than 500 mW optical power. Both modules are RoHS compliant and feature the industry-standard pin-out packaging that offers excellent pulse drift performance and high stability.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
