NEWBURY PARK, Calif., July 31, 2012 — Opto Diode Corp. has announced the second in its series of surface-mount photodiodes. With high sensitivity and short switching time, the low-capacitance ODD-900-002 is suitable for use in a variety of medical diagnostic applications. The surface-mount packaging allows for easy and convenient integration into new or existing systems. The device operates in the spectral bandwidth from 400 to 1100 nm, with a peak sensitivity of 940 nm. Typical responsivity is 0.44 A/W, with typical reverse dark current of 5 nA and total capacitance of 25 pF. Robust and flexible, the ODD-900-002 operating temperature ranges from −25 to 85 °C. The device can be stored at temperatures ranging from −40 to 85 °C. Power dissipation is ≤150 mW at 25 °C free air temperature. Soldering temperature is 260 °C, with maximum soldering time of 5 s.
