Custom Photodetector Solutions
Mar 2006
Avo Photonics Inc.Request Info
HORSHAM, Pa., March 15, 2006 -- Avo Photonics Inc., a source for optical and radio frequency (RF) packaging solutions, announced that it now provides comprehensive services in the analysis, design and assembly of photodetectors for a variety of applications, including high-speed, fiber-coupled integrated receivers, photometers and low-noise, photon-counting detectors for LIDAR (light detection and ranging) systems.
Avo Photonics offers its customers design-through-production services for custom photodetector devices meeting their unique requirements. The company's engineering services can include a comprehensive system-level analysis to identify a wide range of potential product issues such as optical and electrical isolation, low temperature operation, system noise, bandwidth, microphonics, coupling efficiency and low-cost assembly.

“We utilize the analysis to deliver design and package assembly services of photodetector devices for customers in a variety of industries, including the telecommunications, military, medical and industrial markets,” said David Winick, vice president of engineering for Avo Photonics. “Our customers are building advanced systems serving a variety of applications. Our expertise in regard to photodetector packaging, in particular, enables our customers to enhance their overall system performance.”

According to Avo, its areas of technical expertise cover the full spectrum of engineering disciplines, including optical, thermal, mechanical, electrical/RF, materials, manufacturing and systems engineering -- all with a dedicated focus on photonic packaging applications that results in products often exceeding customer expectations.

Winick said Avo provides customers with first-run prototypes quickly because its depth of experience results in shortened design cycles. "Flexible ramp-up production volumes promptly follow,” he said.

An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
A device used to sense incident radiation.
A device used to compare the luminous intensities of two sources by comparing the illuminance they produce.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
