The German sensor manufacturer First Sensor AG will introduce a new avalanche photodiode (APD) with near-infrared (NIR) sensitivity of up to 950 nm at the 2018 SPIE Photonics West trade show taking place in San Francisco from January 27 to February 1.
The 9.5 series is specifically designed for the development of laser radar systems such as LIDAR, laser rangefinders and laser scanning. They are perfectly suitable for the fabrication of custom geometries and arrays.
Some of features include:
- Fast rise time and excellent responsivity in the 950 nm range
- Low gain slope above bias voltage
- Very low dark current
- 0.2 mm² active area
- Low bias operation
The chip is housed in a non-hermetic, ceramic SMD package with a clear glass window.
