WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., June 6, 2014 — The Series 8r silicon avalanche photodiodes (APD) from First Sensor Inc. offers high sensitivity in the red and green wavelength range.
They feature a flat gain curve where the internal amplification rises slowly with the applied reverse bias voltage, which allows accurate adjustments of high-gain factors. The APDs are suited for applications that demand fast rise times and low capacitance.
The Series 8r provides APD chips with active areas of different sizes, and are available in leadless ceramic-carrier SMD packages or hermetically sealed TO housings.
