Avo Photonics to Package PulseTor’s SiPM-Based Products
HORSHAM, Pa., Aug. 15, 2011 — Avo Photonics was selected by PulseTor Inc., a provider of detectors, preamplifiers and digital pulse processors, to advance the performance, packaging and production of the latter company’s next-generation silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) based detectors.
The Sprite line of SiPM-based detector assemblies is used in electron imaging applications.
The measurement requirements and high-vacuum operating environment that are characteristic of these applications impose challenging thermal, electrical, material and mechanical packaging constraints. Avo Photonics has developed a solution that supports optional low-temperature operation without the use of active cooling, while simultaneously providing vacuum compatibility and minimal package size.
Avo Photonics, a Halma company, is a custom design and manufacturing optoelectronic service company.
