Control two wavelengths with a single laser diode driver

The optical output power can be controlled via automatic power control (APC), automatic current control (ACC), or a microcontroller.

The maximum operating current per channel is 750 mA or 1.4 A cascaded. An individual limit for each channel is possible in case the laser diodes have to be operated at a lower maximum operating current.

The integration degree of the analog functions is high in case the microcontroller interface is used for the operation of the laser diodes: multi-channel laser diode controllers can be directly implemented this way.
