PD-LD Inc. offers a variety of standard Surface Emitting LED’s (SLEDs) in ready to use fiber coupled packages.
The SLED product offering includes both 850nm and 1310nm devices. These units produce broad spectrum, incoherent light and have wide spectral widths. Such SLED’s may be modulated from DC to 150 MHz or operated in continuous wave mode.
These devices may be operated in both analog or digital applications. It is typical to drive the SLED’s with up to 100mA forward current. Such devices do not require internal monitor photodiodes which simplifies drive circuit designs.
