  • ODA-5W-100M Photodetector/Amplifier
Oct 2006
Opto Diode CorporationRequest Info
NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Oct. 23, 2006 -- Opto Diode Corp., a manufacturer of advanced performance photodetectors and visible and infrared LEDs, announces the availability of the new ODA-5W-100M photodetector/amplifier combination with 100-Mohm gain.

OptodiodeDetector.jpgPackaged in a standard TO-5 can, the detector's visible wavelength responsivity at 660 nm is 40 V/µW. The new combination detector/preamp's frequency response is 1 KHz with extremely low dark offset at +/-1 mV with dark offset noise at 5 mV RMS. Operating specifications are at +/- 15 V, 25 °C.

The ODA-5W-100M detector active area is 0.100 in. diameter. The TO-5 package makes the device easy to integrate and suitable for a variety of applications such as fluorescence and spectroscopy, the company said. It is also ideal for any low-light-level tasks where electrical noise levels can affect the photodiode signal if the detector and amplifier are separate components on a PCB.

Standard pricing is $25 each in quantities of 1000 pieces. Different gains are also available, depending on customer requirements.

Opto Diode's new photodetector/amplifier combination is produced in their southern California wafer fabrication facility. For more information, visit; e-mail:

A device that enlarges and strengthens a signal's output without significantly distorting its original waveshape. There are amplifiers for acoustical, optical and electronic signals.
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
A device used to sense incident radiation.
