    I'm alive!!!!! Sore but doing alrighT (PHOTO UPDATE)

    Re: I'm alive!!!!! Sore but doing alrighT My back is screwed up from lifting 100Kg speakers and from going snowboarding. Got to go and lift those speakers down again now, i have 4 70Kg speakers stacked starting around head height up to the ceiling! I know some great stretches that will really...

    1'st build, scratch built inside modified cd player for New Year

    Hi there guys. Just wanted to say thanks for all the help and happy new year. Here are some photos of my first build from yesterday morning. I think you will enjoy the results. Driver Module came from Russia from x-wossee on eBay 2A laser diode driver, analog modulation + bias standby (SBS)...

    test load

    I just want to point out that i have found it very easy finding info on dummy loads and that i understand fully true concept and how to use one, however i just can't seem to find the posts which refer to the amount of diodes used for different LD's. For example, which LD's require 9 diodes in...

    Please help me! (i need driver to 2W 445nm diode)

    Thank you so much for posting this diagram, i have fully understood dummy load testing however this is the first time i have managed to find the info on how many diodes i would need to connect for a 445nm LD. Excellent as i have 1N4001 diodes and a 5W 1ohm resistor :) simply solder the 6 diodes...

    test load

    I have been searching for the same answers but i just can't find the explanations. I am about to set a : 2A Laser Diode Driver Analog Modulation Bias Standby SBS 445nm 638nm | eBay for a: Nichia NDB7875 445nm 9mm Laser Diode in A Copper Module w Leads 405 G 2 Lens | eBay I know what a dummy...

    FS: ***Selectable test load up to 3A (assembled or DIY kit)*** IN STOCK!

    Or perhaps a link to the relevant page as i didn't find it yet. Thanks, trying to understand how to setup my driver here before i blow my $100 diode setup b4 New years.

    FS: ***Selectable test load up to 3A (assembled or DIY kit)*** IN STOCK!

    Is there a guide which explains how many diodes to use in series depending on which Ld's we are trying to set the current for? That would make things simple and well explained for some people including me. Thanks. James

    Proper Driver set up?

    Hi, is anyone able to point me to a thread which explains how many diodes i need to connect in series to check the current for a Nichia NDB7875 445nm LD? and also i have 1N4001 50V 1A DO-41 Axial Lead Rectifier Diodes and a 1ohm 5W resistor. Can i use these diodes with the correct results...

    Inexpensive ESD (static) protection.

    Hi. Did anybody ever decide weather or not Unidirectional diodes were a good ESD protection or not? If so what is a good value diode to use to protect a Nichia NDB7875 445nm 9mm Laser Diode In a Copper Module? I was thinking to set the input power to the driver at 7v and limit the current to...
