High-speed InGaAs photodiodes come in space-saving packaging
Stephen LawElectronics Optoelectronics opto optoelectronics photodiodes
FERMIONICS OPTO-TECHNOLOGY FD80 Series of high-speed, low-dark-current, low-capacitance photodiodes are ultra-compact, designed for use in extremely tight spaces, such as high-speed communication systems. Products feature a planar-passivated device structure with an 80µm diameter active area on a vertical or horizontal-mount S8 ceramic package pigtail assembly in solderable surface-mount configurations. For added convenience, the high-speed indium gallium arsenide PIN photodiodes are coupled directly to a single- or multi-mode pigtail fiber. Devices are also available with an internal fiber tip angle which is polished for low back reflection, and other customizable options.
