SENSORS AND DETECTORS
8 August 2012
Opto Diode, a division of ITW, and a member of the ITW Photonics Group, has announced the second in the series of surface mount photodiodes, the ODD-900-002.
With high sensitivity and short switching time, the low capacitance photodiode is ideal for use in a variety of medical diagnostic applications. The surface-mount packaging allows for easy and convenient integration into new or existing systems. The device operates in the spectral bandwidth from 400 to 1100nm, with a peak sensitivity of 940nm.
Typical responsivity is at 0.44 A/W with typical reverse dark current at 5nA and total capacitance, typically at 25pF. Robust and flexible, the ODD-900-002 operating temperatures range from -25 degrees C to +85 degrees C. The device can be stored at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C for added convenience.
Similar to the recently introduced ODD-900-001 Surface Mount Photodiode with Daylight Filter, the new ODD-900-002 photodiode’s power dissipation is 150mW at, or below 25 degrees C. Both new devices also feature a soldering temperature of 260 degrees C.
