Hello from The Show Me State

Recommended Posts

Hello All

My name is Jeff Lampe.

I go by Frosty for short,, I got the name FrostyTheDadMan from one of my best friends 6 months after my Son was born, He is still my Pride and Joy 11 years later. ;o)

Just in case anyone was woundering.


I am also FrostyTheDadMan on WWW.Laserholics.com

Here is a link to a simulataion I did for Phil Dixon of the FAA that was a 50mW 532nm laser at 1000 feet. We also had a major hand in the new Laser Laws the post after the phone call from phil Dixon


My 40 Watt 808nm and a laser Vortex. the Vortex Laser is a 445nm at 1.4 Watt. The driver is my design and is small enough to fit on the end of your finger but it can push up to 3 Amp @ 5.5 Volt and pulses from 5Mhz to 200Mhz the XJA-140 445nm diodes like 40 to 50 Mhz.

I call it the Mighty Micro Drive.


I have been playing with Electronics sence my father got his Bell & Howell's Heath Kit GR-2000 TV. Yes I am almost as old as dirt. LOL


We have come a long way sence then,,, Now I am trying my hand programing.

I have a lot to learn,, I hope you all can teach an Old Dog new tricks. LOL


I have a C2K launchpad and I want to program it to control a Laser Projector.


Red 650nm 1.8 Watt, Blue 445nm 1 watt, and green 532nm 1 Watt


The total power output will be close to 3.5 Watt to 4 Watt depending on the proper color mix.


The Mirrors will be X & Y Galvos.

I will save the rest for the proper time and place.



I'm Jeff or Frosty which ever you prefer.
