    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    The price is insane. If this is really necessary, I will make my own one.

    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    This "press fit tool" you mention, do I really need that? How can I find them and what do they even look like?

    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    Yes these are the DVD burning speeds. Thank you. :) I know I can just buy the diodes for a few bucks, but I get these DVD burners for free. ;)

    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    But 24x is the fastest burning speed for DVDs there is, isn't it? I also have some burners that can burn with up to 16x... How much mW would you say can I expect?

    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    The max DVD burning speed is 24x I think.

    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    Thanks for all the information. :) I ordered some of these modules now. Do you think I need an additional heat-sink for a DVD burner diode? At how much mW could I safely drive them? And for how long at a time? Do you think 15secs at 200mW would work without additional cooling?

    What is the form factor of diodes found in DVD burners?

    I'm planning to take apart a few old DVD burners, but I want to order some heatsinks first. That's kind of hard though because I don't know the form factor of the diode. (you know, TO-18, TO-5 etc ) Any idea what I have to expect?

    Components to build a handheld with the 1W Nichia diode?

    I was planning to buy the diode from odicforce: Nichia 1W+ 520nm Green Laser Diode (9mm) NUGM01T with Ball Lens (extracted) But it doesn't come with a "module" (what does that even mean?). The price is really good though and they are in the EU (...err well not anymore, but at least they are in...

    Components to build a handheld with the 1W Nichia diode?

    I'm thinking about buying one of those 1W 520nm diodes. I think "NUGM01T" is what they are called. I have built a handheld laser before, but it was easy because I just needed to solder a diode to a driver and put everything in a flashlight-like case. And everything fitted in perfectly. But I...
