ADVANCED PHOTONIX Silicon (Si) and Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) surface-mount technology (SMT) photodetectors are suitable for high-speed response applications. Family of Surface-Mount Devices (SMDs) are assembled in compact, water-clear P-I-N, APD, PSD, and 1206 packaging and are available in cut tape, tape box, tape & reel or custom reel quantities. The optical sensors/photodiodes are specially designed for automated SMT/SMD assembly and solder reflow mounts on printed circuit boards and ceramic substrates. Devices are offered in various wavelengths ranging from Ultraviolet (UV) to Near Infrared (300 nm to 1700 nm).  Products range in varying active area sizes from 0.185 mm² up to 8.07 mm² to meet customers’ specific needs. Sensors also feature small footprints, low dark current and capacitance, and high sensitivity.
