Three Five (III-V) Compounds Inc. is offering a true surface-mountable packaged photodiode with dimensions of 5 × 4 × 1.1 mm. It can accept a PIN photodiode chip with an active area up to 10 mm2. It is available in three versions to meet the requirements of various sensing applications. The standard clear-encapsulant-lens model operates from the visible to 1000 nm; the red encapsulant lens is for applications that must filter out visible ambient light interference; and the black encapsulant lens is for higher responsivity in the IR. The devices are provided on tape and reel, with 1000 parts per reel for simple pick-and-place usage.
