Preannouncement Laser Diode Driver LDD-1137

Laser Diode Driver LDD-1137


Multifunctional and powerful: >= 3.6 kW, pulsed or CW,
>= 60 V output voltage.

- DEVELOPMENT is written all caps at Meerstetter -

We often received questions about it and now we’re letting it out: we are happy to preannounce our latest development, the LDD-1137. We preannounce it in the hope of helping you plan.

The LDD-1137 is the flagship of the next generation of laser diode drivers and serves as technological foundation for much more in our development pipeline. The LDD-1137 unites the experience of our previous LDD generations, customer requests and technologies newly available on the market.

The main features are the fast processor/FPGA, shorter pulses, steeper flanks and more power. The proven features are retained – for example the stable MeCom protocol, for an easy integration in your system.

At a glance:

  • 0 to minimum 60 V output voltage
  • 0 to at least 60 A output current with ripple smaller than 0.2%
  • Pulse rise time << 100 ns with a resistive load
  • High efficiency above 94%
  • Various interfaces: USB 2.0, 2x RS485, Ethernet, CAN, I2C and more

We expect maturity for production early next year. The unit price will be around 1000 CHF. If you want more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are happy to help you.

Best regards and stay healthy!
