The diode current is determined by the voltage at pin CI and by the resistors RK1 and RK2. The two fast switches are controlled independently via CMOS inputs EN1 and EN2. The laser diode can thus be turned on and off or switched between different current levels defined by the ratio of RK1 and RK2. Each channel can be operated on 150mA DC and up to 700mA pulsed current depending on the frequency, duty cycle and heat dissipation. The integrated thermal shutdown feature prevents damage from excessive temperature. +3.5..5V CLDA LD 7 3 LDK 8 VDD iC-HK CI M1 M2 EN1 1 EN2 5 V(CI) OVERTEMP.SHUTDOWN AGND1 AGND2 GND 2 4 RK1 6 RK2 iC-HK supplements the laser diode driver iC-WK which uses the monitor Operation as a voltage-controlled current source current of the laser diode to control the laser power. iC-WK therefore controls the voltage at pin CI in such a way that the mean value of the emitted laser power is constant (APC), providing there is a constant duty cycle and a switching frequency of greater than 100kHz.

The values for V(CI), RK1 and RK2 can be determined for the required diode current at room temperature from the opposite diagram. A parallel to the x axis must be drawn through the desired diode current. Either RKx can be obtained for a required value of V(CI) or the respective value of V(VI) can be achieved for a given RKx. Thermal Shutdown iC-HK is protected by an integrated thermal shutdown feature. When the shutdown temperature is reached both channels are locked.
