Koheron DRV110 is a current source that can drive up to 1200 mA of current with a compliance voltage of 12 V. Its current noise of 300 pA/√Hz (200 pA/√Hz for the 750 mA version) is below the noise of a 1 A Poissonian current source. The DRV110 can be used to drive high current LEDs below the shot noise limit. Thanks to its high compliance voltage and its low noise performance, the DRV110 is an excellent choice to drive quantum cascade lasers (QCL).

Current noise

The power spectral density of the DRV110 laser driver current noise was characterized using a 2.5 Ω load and followed by an instrumentation amplifier. Both drivers were supplied with 7 V.

DRV110 laser driver current noise

Current noise RMS integrated between 10 Hz and 1 MHz is 168 nA for the 750 mA laser current version (A-750) and 289 nA for the 1200 mA laser current version (A-1200).

Current stability

The figure below shows the current variation for different ambient temperatures between 5 and 55 °C. A DRV110-A-750 (750 mA laser current version) supplied at 7V and delivering 600 mA into a 5 Ω load was used. Temperature coefficient is below 15 ppm/°C.

DRV110 laser driver temperature coefficient

Current stability is depicted in the following figure showing a 24-hour long evolution of current, set to 600 mA at 25 °C ambient temperature. Current is stable within +/- 50 ppm.
