ASE-10XX: ASE Light Source

The ASE-10XX series of Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE) light sources are designed as compact, portable, cost-effective solutions for use in a variety of applications.  These light sources have excellent output power stability and a minimum spectral width of 50 nm at 20 dB down.

The output optical power level is constantly monitored and the drive current adjusted appropriately to achieve a high level of power stability. An onboard temperature sensor allows the power monitoring circuitry to be calibrated during production test to provide measurement resolution of 0.01 dB and linearity (relative accuracy) of 0.1 over the operating temperature range of 0°C to 40°C.

An AC/DC adapter is provided to power the ASE-10XX module and its 10/100BaseT Ethernet interface is used to allow the module to be controlled via Static or Dynamic IP addressing. In this configuration a standard HTML browser (e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) provides the user interface (see example window in product specification) and the various control and status HTML pages are integrated into the microcontroller’s firmware. Additionally, the module allows SNMP control via this Ethernet interface.

The ASE-10XX can also be connected directly to a Windows based computer running the USB graphical user interface (GUI) software. The USB GUI (see example window in product specification) is also able to provide the same complete control and status of the module as the browser based GUI.
