The company’s QuickSwitch Pulsed Laser Diode (PLD) was recognized as one of the Innovative Products of the Year 2019 which highlights cutting-edge advancements and achievements that are moving the sensors industry forward. Across fourteen categories, the prestigious awards were presented by the Editor of Fierce-Electronics during Sensors Expo & Conference 2019, held June 25-27, 2019 in San Jose, California.Based on LASER COMPONENTS’ proprietary compact hybrid configuration that integrates a 905 nm laser diode, switch and capacitor inside a TO56 metal housing, QuickSwitch can generate in one second up to 200,000 laser pulses with a typical duration of 2.5 ns. This is currently the fastest hybrid PLD solution available on the market allowing to collect data faster and higher resolution in laser-based distance measurement (LiDAR) applications that are finding their way into passenger vehicles. In the race to safer driving, automotive LiDAR sensor manufacturers will benefit from QuickSwitch to design more sensitive systems that warn drivers of hazards earlier, avoid collision, and ultimately facilitate autonomous drive.

“Our engineers’ innovative approach to minimize the inductance loop and to optimize the circuit layout for driving PLDs with fast rise times and short pulses is setting us apart from conventional designs,” says Mr. Matt Robinson, Sales Director of LASER COMPONENTS USA. “We are honored to receive this award in recognition of their dedication to deliver a unique product that meets current and future market needs,” Robinson added.

“For more than three decades Sensors Expo has been bringing together the most exciting technological advancements and cutting-edge applications from across the industry. The winners of this year’s Best of Sensors Awards underscore just how far-reaching the impacts of these innovations have become. LASER COMPONENTS personifies the commitment to engineering excellence and overall ingenuity we look for and we are thrilled to recognize their efforts in an extremely competitive field,” noted Cal Groton, Event Director, Sensors Expo & Conference.

This is the second award for LASER COMPONENTS’ QuickSwitch PLD in recent months. A previous recognition includes the Autonomous Vehicle Technology ACES Award in December, 2018.

news-1605Tue, 28 May 2019 09:09:02 +0200Bavarian laser technology and photonics: technologies for the futurehttps://bayern-photonics.de/invest in bavaria: Laser technology has long been an innovation driver for various branches of industry and everyday applications and is expanding this role with a view to areas that will become more important in future, such as additive manufacturing and data transmission. Bavaria is well positioned for the future with its outstanding infrastructure in terms of laser technology. Laser sounds like the future – and rightly so. Laser technology has not only been directly linked to the technologies of the future since today. We have long been familiar with lasers from printers and barcode readers. They were once the technology of the future. On the other hand, the future is now with holography or data transmission using optical fibres. The same also applies to the promising additives manufacturing industry: a product is manufactured by applying a starting material layer by layer using a three-dimensional computer model. The material binds during the process and everyday objects or components for industry are ready.

news-1468Tue, 22 Jan 2019 11:39:57 +0100Autonomous System Measures the Smallest Signal Dropoutshttps://bayern-photonics.de/With the OP1100 discontinuity analyzer, LASER COMPONENTS presents an autonomous test system for detecting and recording dropouts in optical data transmission.The OptoTestdevice detects signal fluctuations of 0.5 dB and a duration of 0.8 μs. Up to 24 single-modeor multi-mode fibers can be monitored simultaneously.The events are recorded in a fast, high-resolution data logger. This allows experts to trackthe course of the dropout and draw conclusions about its cause.In addition to round-the-clock monitoring of fiber optic networks, the OP1100 is also suitablefor laboratory tests. Passive and active network components can be precisely checkedfor irregularities caused by temperature fluctuations, vibrations, and other shocks such assignal dropouts or temporary fluctuations in the output or transit signal.
