Title: Driver circuitry and systems for high current laser diode arrays

Abstract

Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed to drive pumping laser diode arrays. In implementations, an integrated system can be constructed to in a compact, efficient and cost-effective manner and to meet the needs of driving laser diode arrays in various diode pumped solid state laser applications. The disclosed implementations include individual laser diode drivers or pulsers, methods of communicating with laser diode drivers, and methods of controlling the pulse shape of each laser diode driver.
