Opto Diode has released the NIR/Red Enhanced 6mm² ODA-6W-100M Photodetector-Preamplifier. The device features lower noise than discrete detector preamp circuits due to Opto Diode’s shielded amplifier electronics. With a large active area and extremely low noise, the new component operates in the NIR wavelength with response at 940nm (typically 63 V/uW, min). The standard version features 500Mohm gain with custom gains also available, per customer specifications. Opto Diode’s photodiode-preamp combo is ideal for low-light-level tasks such as fluorescence. It is also highly suited for applications in the low pW region where discrete detector/preamplifier solutions are not sensitive enough.
