IXYS Colorado Introduces the PCX-7420 Precision Laser Diode Driver Precision Pulsed Power - Problem Solved!

Fort Collins, CO, March 20, 2012. IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ: IXYS), a leader in power semiconductors, mixed signal and digital ICs for power conversion and motion control applications, announced today the introduction of the PCX-7420 Precision Laser Diode Driver by its IXYS Coloradodivision. This system level product provides precision pulsed power with accurate MCU based digital power control.

The PCX-7420 is an air-cooled, high power CW/QCW current sourced designed to drive diode lasers, bars and arrays up to 21.5 Amps at 24 Volts. Designed from the ground up to provide a laser diode driver/current source that is dependable and easy to operate, the PCX-7420 represents the next step in driving laser diodes and other current source applications for research, laboratory, scientific and industrial applications.
By utilizing one of several communication choices all standard with the PCX-7420, customers can easily develop automated testing and characterization configurations which can be stored in the instrument's on-board memory.
PCX-7420 Features
• 1A - 21.5A Output Current - High current capability with 1-5.8A bias and an additional 15.7A of laser pulse power.
• Fast Rise and Fall Times - less than 25nS for high speed applications.
• Forward Voltages up to 24V - Combining higher current and a 24V capability the
PCX-7420 provides flexibility to test both single diodes and arrays.
• Output Bias (Simmer) Current
• Diode and Driver Safety - Safety features include over current limit, open load detection and diode steering (prevents reverse current).
• Ease of Operation - Intuitive touch screen interface.
• Communicate - Ethernet, USB & RS232 all standard.
• CE & RoHS compliant - The PCX-7420 is compliant with both the CE and RoHS
standards.
"We took what customers liked about the popular PCX-7410 and we brought improved biasing technology, newer communications options, increased current capability and a new user friendly interface and combined them to achieve the performance and ease of use that you will find in the PCX-7420," said Stephen Krausse, General Manager of DEI.
"These products take advantage of the power integration knowledge in IXYS to provide unique power systems solutions to our customers."
Applications For driving laser diodes in:
• Atmospheric Science
• Mil/Aero
• Industrial
• High power pulsed experimentation/lab use
• Testing and characterization of laser diodes, LED's, and diode/array
• Testing of power semiconductors.
The PCX-7420 is available directly from IXYS Colorado (Directed Energy) Tel. (970)
493-1901, Fax (970) 232-3025, Email sales@ixyscolorado.com , www.ixyscolorado.com or through your local authorized IXYS/IXYSRF sales representative.
