A. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The DenseLight DL-BP1-1501A is a series of electronics driver integrated superluminescent
light emitting diode (SLED) broadband source for fiber optic sensor, optical test
instrument and optical coherence tomography. This DL-BP1-1501A consists of a
DenseLight SLED in a standard 14-pin butterfly package, a temperature controller and a
built-in current driver capable for CW driving and digital modulation input. The SLED light
source also features USB control interface and integrated optical circulator.

(2) Output Mode control selectable via USB Control Interface
(3) External modulation input impedance: 50Ohm
K. USB Control Interface
Feature: User selectable optical power output
a) Under CW mode: (OMODE=0) USB interface allows user to set REF_APC (internal
reference voltage for APC) for Auto Power Controlled operation.
b) Under External Modulation mode: (OMODE=1) USB interface allows user to set
REF_ACC (internal reference voltage for ACC) for Auto Current Controlled
operation that determines the peak pulsed power.
c) Unit is shipped with factory calibration table to link REF_ACC to REF_APC. USB
command available for user on-site self-calibration function.
Protocol details to be advised.
