To achieve accurate test data, LEDs, laser diodes, and other devices must be tested at their max capacity for the required amount of time. Watch this video to learn how to avoid equipment with hidden limitations.
When a laser fails, it can suffer catastrophic damage if the power supply does not have a failsafe. This application note documents tests conducted with three different types of power supplies to determine how they respond to a typical failure scenario.
Don’t compromise. Use a current source that can provide the power you need to test your device. You’re selling your devices for full power operation so you should be able to test them at full power. Watch the video to learn why.
