There are threads here that have gone on for many months about this laser. Only recently has a price of $900 been proposed after the initial $950 was not well received. For that kind of money, I would rather get the module and driver from Opt as they have had theirs out for quite sometime now. I think a gadget guy's wet dream would be to put one of these together himself. :whistle:

Already in the works my friend, already in the works. ;-)

I will have to see what Sharp comes up with. That announcement is from 2017, so it doesn't look like it will be coming very soon. If they can produce an RGB laser diode it remains to be seen if it can be combined into a solitary beam. They are claiming to get white from the mixing of the colors, but not that it can be converged.

Are these available from somewhere that you know of? That package is larger than I expected, but with an integrated TEC, I suppose it is about as small as they could make it. I wonder how well the three beams are collimated and if they actually are aligned into a single beam. If that is possible, this would be a much better alternative to the Sanwu $900 laser. It certainly seems to have control over the amount of power from each diode, so changing the beam's color wouldn't be difficult to accomplish.

In fact, it is not difficult to integrate 3 in 1, but we will get 1 diode with 6 pins,if sharp can provide 9mm diode RGB with 6pins,it is interesting

The sharp ones don't exist yet - those ones linked are by another company. Though I'd imagine what they come up with will be similar. Knowing sharp, I'd expect to be able to get a good deal more power out

Nope, its a HUGE Corporation with many divisions

That to me says sharp used the rgb-one in their RoBoHoN projector, not their own LD's (which sharp didn't have the tech for green yet in 2016). What I linked was sharp saying they plan to make their own version now that they figured out green LD's.

As far as I can find, sharp isn't a part of sumimoto electric.

11x13.2x5.7mm is bigger than you expected for an RGB module using discrete diodes and combining optics? That's not much bigger than those tiny OPSLs. About 1mm shorter, 5mm wider and 1.5mm taller. Impressive for an RGB module, optics and TEC all in one.
