Opto Diode has introduced a 16-element photodiode that is for UV/EUV or electron detection. The new AXUV16ELG features a 40-pin dual in-line package, and internal quantum efficiency (QE) at 100 per cent. The new photodiode is designed with a 2 x 5mm active area and a sensitive area of 10mm² per element.

To enhance accuracy, the 40-pin detector offers stable response after exposure to high energy electrons or photons. Other features include reverse breakdown voltage at 25V, capacitance of 40pF, and a rise time of 500ns. Storage and operating temperatures range from -10°C to 40°C for ambient environments, and from -20°C to 80°C for nitrogen or vacuum conditions. The maximum junction temperature is 70°C and the lead-soldering temperature (0.080-inch from case for 10 seconds) is 260°C.
