Yes.... there are.... such as the *DIY Drivers like the DDL circuit....
All you need to do is use the Search Button and read the Stickies..
and in no time at all... you will be able to build your own Drivers... 8-)

As for LD power you will need to search that info for your particular
Laser Diode type.. 8-)

Default Re: diy laser driver?

check the stickies in the experiments and modifications board, there's one there called **THREADS OF INTEREST** or one called FAQ READ THIS BEFORE POSTING, both of which have links to diy drivers.

I wonder if there's any way of making these things more obvious... maybe we can ask c0ld to put the stickies titles in 72 point bold red text...

I think we should make the stickies occupy the entire first page of the Tutorials forum so that the actual "forum" area is hidden away from direct view on the second page. Just to be sure, we should also use pseudolobster's idea of using 72pt red text too.
