I want to control the Bias and Modulation current of a laser diode using a microcontroller, a DAC and discrete components (including operational amplifiers).
Current range 3mA to 25mA with 0.1mA step.
Current pulses: rise time few nanoseconds, 10% max overshoot
I have found this circuit from TI that controls the current based on its

I am using a photodiode SFH206K (datasheet attached with the mail). The laser light is incident on the photodiode with a frequency of 10 and 20 Hz. Can you suggest me proper value of the RC filter given in the circuit attached with the mail. I tried with R7 = 220K and C55 = 100nF but none of the lights are detected and if I neglect the f

Hello, Im looking for help to the following problem:
Im sending timing signals with directed narrow angle IR leds. When IR LED switches on I should detect signal with +5V or +3.3V GPIO pin. Most important is to get constant time, lets say?10ns, between IR present and detection. It wouldnt hurt to get long range (3-4m) too.

I have not being a member of edaboard for a long time so please inform me if I can place this post in a better place. I thought that this would be a good place since PIN diode are used a lot in RF applications, although this is not an RF application.
I need a good source of information (Technical or Application notes) on

Why don't you use a photodiode instead.It's worth a try .Anyway your project is fabulous and very exciting

Your photodiode is in wronge direction, you must reverse the diode direction.

A problem about an integrator simulation;
when i simulate an integrator ,a warning is followed that missing bulk source(a reset MOS switch ) would be forwardly biased. i do not know why?
1.a photodiode is connected to negative input terminal of operational amplifer.
2. a 2.5v referrence voltage is connected to positiv
