In a compact 0805 case size with a low 0.7 mm profile, these Vishay diodes are 0.15 mm lower than prior generation devices.

Offered in black packages, the opaque side walls of the Vishay semiconductors VEMD4010X01 and VEMD4110X01 eliminate unwanted side illumination to increase their signal-to-noise ratio. The Vishay photodiodes from New Yorker Electronics are used in photo detection applications such as solar load sensors; automotive rain, light and tunnel sensors; light barriers for elevators, garage doors and industrial equipment; and reflective sensors for touchless faucets, toilets and trash cans.

For the detection of visible and near infrared radiation, the VEMD4010X01 offers a sensitivity range from 550 nm to 1040 nm. For 740 nm to 1040 nm infrared applications, the VEMD4110X01 features a daylight blocking filter and is matched with 830 nm to 950 nm infrared (IR) emitters. They eliminate unwanted side illumination and increase signal-to-noise ratio.

The newly released Vishay silicon PIN photodiodes feature a sensitive area of 0.42 mm2. They provide a reverse light current of 2.4 µA and a low dark current of 1 nA. The device possesses fast response times and ± 60° angles of half-sensitivity. The moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 3 is in accordance with J-STD-020 for a floor life of 168 hours.
