Nanosecond Pulse Source for TOF LiDAR

Pilot Photonics’ nanosecond pulse source is based on a single mode laser with an integrated pulse carver. It offers optical pulses with high temporal extinction ratio and no pulse pedestals; ideal for applications such as time of flight LIDAR. The device can be provided in a TO-Can, TOSA, or in a high-speed butterfly package, with reference design for integration into customer electronics.
