Opto Diode Corporation www.optodiode.com
based in Newbury Park, California, is a member of the ITW Photonics Group,
delivering high-performance, standard and custom photodetectors, and reliable,
high quality, standard and custom infrared and visible LEDs. The company, with
the recent acquisition of International Radiation Detectors, also designs and
manufactures semiconductor radiation devices that detect photons in the UV
range, X-rays, and other high energy particles. The domestic U.S.
manufacturing plant includes a wafer fab and ensures delivery of volume
quantities at competitive prices with short lead times. Opto Diode’s rigorous quality control
standards meet their customer’s strictest requirements in a variety of
industries, including test & measurement, biotechnology, medical,
entertainment, military/defense, industrial, aerospace, automotive, R&D and
ITW, a diversified manufacturer
of advanced industrial technology, has brought together three of its photonics
business units to form the ITW Photonics Group.
The ITW Photonics Group was created to bring together and build on the
technical expertise of three individual companies that specialize in photonics
technology and span the full spectrum of wavelengths. The group consists of
Lumex (LED and LCD technology, headquarters in Palatine, IL and Taiwan), Cal
Sensors (IR detector and emitter technology, based in Santa Rosa, CA) and Opto
Diode (LED, silicon photodiodes and electro-optical
assembly technology, based in Newbury Park, CA).
The synergy of these
industry frontrunners provides an unsurpassed range of photonic capabilities
within a broad spectrum of markets, including medical, military and industrial
controls. The ITW Photonics Group provides integrated solutions that encompass
the technology and experience from all three business units, offering design
engineers higher product performance with greater feature enhancements. For more information on the ITW Photonics
