   ILX LIGHTWAVE LDC-3916   Description / Specification:    
ILX LIGHTWAVE LDC-3916 16-Ch Modular Laser Diode Controller

The ILX Lightwave LDC-3916 Laser Diode Controller offers 16 channels of laser diode current source and temperature control in a space saving rack mountable instrument for simultaneous control of both current and temperature of up to 16 laser diodes in one mainframe. The high stability, low noise current and temperature controllers also make the 3916 suitable for low-channel count burn-in systems or, coupled with ILX’s 16-channel laser diode mount, a 16 channel DFB source bank. A wide variety of laser control modules are available including laser controller modules, dual channel laser current source, and dual channel temperature control modules. Controller modules source up to 1.5A of laser current with an integrated 9W temperature controller. Dual laser current source modules, with two isolated outputs, source up to 1A per channel, while dual temperature control modules provide two independent 9W outputs for control of up to 32 laser diodes per mainframe. Remote operation for independent control of all 16 channels is provided through an IEEE488 GPIB interface or RS-232 serial interface. Vacuum fluorescent, 64 x 128 pixels.

Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
