LIGHT CONVERSION

Photonics Spectra

AMS-TAOS USA Inc.Request Info
 
The TSL237S released by Texas Advanced Optoelectronic Solutions Inc. (Taos) is a high-resolution light-to-frequency converter that combines a silicon photodiode and a current-to-frequency converter on a single monolithic CMOS integrated circuit. Output is a square wave -- 50% duty cycle -- with frequency directly proportional to the light intensity, or irradiance, on the photodiode. The instrument is temperature-compensated for the UV to the visible range, from 320 to 700 nm, and it responds from 320 to 1050 nm. Digital output enables direct interface to a microcontroller, and operating temperature ranges from –25 to 70 °C. The converter comes in a three-lead clear plastic side-looker package with an integral lens.

GLOSSARY
silicon photodiode
Semiconductor PN or PIN junction that uses absorbed photon energy in the range of 1.06 to 1.03 eV to excite carriers from one energy level to a higher state. The resultant change in the charge across the junction is monitored as a current in the external photodiode circuit.
