OSI Optoelectronics Introduces 800 nm Silicon Avalanche Photodiode Series
APD Series 8-150
October 9, 2012
October 9, 2012 – Hawthorne, CA – OSI Optoelectronics – an OSI Systems Company,
introduces the APD Series 8-150, a new family of silicon avalanche photodiodes optimized for operation in the 800 nm wavelength
region. Available in hermetically-sealed metal packages, the devices offer lower noise and high sensitivity over high bandwidths
up to 1 GHz. The new APD models feature 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, and/or 1.5 mm (diam.) active areas and exhibit low temperature coefficients
of 0.45/V degrees C, making them ideal for optical fiber communication, laser range finder, and high-speed photometry applications.
Storage temperature for the new devices is from minus 55 degrees to 125 degrees C, with an operating temperature range from minus
40 degrees C to 100 degrees C, maximum. For more information about OSI’s new silicon avalanche photodiode Series 8-150 series,
