We offer a variety of standard Surface Emitting LEDs (SLEDs) in ready to use fiber coupled packages.
The PD-LD SLED product offering includes both 850nm and 1310nm devices. These units produce broad spectrum, incoherent light and have wide spectral widths. Such SLEDs 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 SLEDs with up to 100mA forward current. Such devices do not require internal monitor photodiodes which simplifies drive circuit designs.
Packaging options include Receptacle style housings such as ST, FC and SC as well as fiber pigtailed co-axial assemblies. SLEDs are typically used with multi-mode optical fiber and may be specified for coupling to 50um, 62.5um or 100um core optical fibers. Units built with fiber pigtails are available terminated with optical connectors. Specialty fiber sizes may be available upon request.
