BeST-SLED®

#
Description

The BeST-SLED® is the LUXMUX original - a rugged, compact broadband light source in the near infrared wavelength range. It offers spectral coverage from 1230nm to 1730nm with up to 50mW of optical power.

The BeST-SLED® is comprised of a set of superluminescent diodes and driver circuit with overlapping spectral coverage into a 32 pin butterfly package. This module can be sold separately, and directly integrated into existing OEM products.

Feature

Optimize a customized light source tailored to your application. 19 different SLEDs are currently available with center wavelengths ranging from 790nm to 1680nm. Choose any combination of up to six different SLEDs. All of this flexibility and power are available in our compact 32-Pin butterfly package.

BUILD A BEST-SLED®

Select any combination, up to 6 SLEDs from the choice of 19, to create a compact, powerful unit that can optimize your application.

TECHNICAL FEATURES:

  • 6 Independent SLED current controls up to 0A to 1.2A

  • 6 Independent monitor photodiode readouts for each SLED

  • 6 Independent actual current readings for each SLED

  • 6 Manual switches, to turn each SLED on or off

  • USB or Ethernet communication

  • PC software for full control and monitoring

  • Custom API available

  • Temperature monitoring of heatsink and PCB

  • TEC control of the 32-Pin butterfly package

  • TEC control of the optional power meters

  • Automatic fan control for optimal thermal management

  • Compatible with all Luxmux 32-Pin butterfly packages

  • Superluminescent diodes, low coherence length

The BeST-SLED® product line is tested to comply with the Telcordia reliability standards.

Related Applications

  • Superluminescent diodes, low coherence length

  • Reliable and stable over the entire spectral range

  • Compact: up to 6 SLEDs from 740nm to 1720nm in one 32-pin Butterfly Package

  • 40 mW of optical power with a single mode fiber

  • Broad Spectrum

  • FWHM up to 480nm

  • Widely tunable and flexible

  • Cost-effective / High value

  • Rugged and durable

Performance

The BeST-SLED has worked very well. We needed a low coherence device with good spectral power and we are now using both the 1480nm and 1545nm sources. We are running a novel interferometer architecture where we leverage the low coherence of the SLED.
