IXYS Colorado logoFORT COLLINS - IXYS Corp. (Nasdaq: IXYS), a leader in power semiconductors, mixed-signal and digital ICs for power conversion and motion control applications, announced the introduction of the PCX-7500 high-power laser diode driver/current source by its Colorado division based in Fort Collins.

The instrument provides precision pulsed current with accurate microprocessor-based digital power control, the company said.

"The PCX-7500 represents a new level in output power for IXYS Colorado's 7000 series laser diode drivers," said Stephen Krausse, general manager of DEI.

"This driver leverages decades of IXYS Colorado design and the power integration experience of our parent company (IXYS Power) to deliver one of the highest current drivers available on the market today."

The PCX-7500 is an air-cooled, benchtop current source designed to drive laser diodes, bars and arrays at up to 450 amperes of current and 110 volts maximum-forward voltage, IXYS said.

Pulse widths are adjustable from 4 microseconds to 5,000 microseconds with a frequency of up to 10,000 Hz.

IXYS said the PCX-7500 is "ideal for research, laboratory, scientific and industrial applications."

The product is available directly from IXYS Colorado (Directed Energy) or online at www.ixyscolorado.com.
