Inexpensive Avalanche Photodiodes in an SMD Housing

Silicon APDs for the wavelength range between 400 nm and 1100 nm with the smallest dimensions


Matching our high-end/low-cost pulsed laser diodes at 905 nm, we also offer Si avalanche photodiodes in a compact SMD housing. The dimensions are just 3.1 mm x 1.8 mm x 1 mm.

You receive an emitter and a detector with an excellent price/performance ratio from one source. These devices are made for such applications as range finding, speed measurement, laser radar guns, and security scanners, as well as for use in test and measurement systems in industry and medicine.

The SAH series has an epitaxial structure and is produced on 6” wafers. The new APD features a high sensitivity between 400 nm and 1000 nm and short rise times from 250 ps to 300 ps. Designs with a diameter of 230 µm and 500 µm are available for delivery. Another advantage includes a low operating voltage, which contributes to saving energy in portable systems (e.g., laser range finders).
