New products: SYNC series short-pulse seed laser diode drivers

We are thrilled to announce the release of two new laser diode drivers by Evolase: the PLD-PS-SYNC and PLD-NS-SYNC. They are compact short-pulse seed laser diode drivers for powering 10/14-pin butterfly laser diode modules for applications, which require pulse widths from 1 ns to 100 ns (PLD-NS-SYNC) or about 50 ps (PLD-PS-SYNC).

The driver is specially designed to minimize jitter between external trigger signal and optical pulse by enabling external clock synchronization. The driver also supports operation in Master/Slave mode and synchronization of optical pulses between two lasers, one operates as Master and another one as Slave, with the optical pulse position jitter below 500 ps and tunable delay between the optical pulses from two lasers.

SYNC series laser diode drivers key features:

  • special design for 10/14 pin butterfly laser diode;
  • output current up to 2000 mA;
  • compliance voltage up to 3 V;
  • external trigger option;
  • external clock option;
  • master/slave operation mode with the repetition rate jitter suppression;
  • USB, RS-232, CAN, UART interfaces;
  • On-board TEC controller;
  • 5Vdc input power;
  • completed by heatsink;
  • compact size 85 mm × 60 mm × 21 mm.


  • adjustable pulse width 1–100 ns;
  • repetition rate up to 10 MHz.


  • extra short 50 ps pulse width;
  • repetition rate up to 30 MHz.

We invite you to explore the capabilities of our new PLD-PS-SYNC and PLD-NS-SYNC drivers and experience the difference they can make in your applications. Get in touch with us today to learn more about the SYNC series and our other exciting products.
