Paper Abstract

A switched-mode laser power supply (SMPS) for driving He-Ne lasers is presented. It uses an integrated SMPS control circuit to drive a flyback converter running in discontinuous current mode. The IC controls the SMPS power throughput and regulation by pulse-width modulation (PWM) of a fixed frequency drive signal for a bipolar power switching transistor. PWM control is achieved by varying the duty factor of the SMPS power transistor switching between 17.5% and 40%. The SMPS operates from a main input voltage range of (185-250) Vrms/50 Hz with an efficiency higher than 90%.
