Opto Diode Introduces Surface Mount Photodiode
July 23, 2012
July 23, 2012 – Newbury Park, CA – Opto Diode, a division of ITW, and a member of the ITW Photonics Group,
announces the second in the series of surface mount photodiodes, the ODD-900-002. With high sensitivity and short switching time,
the low capacitance photodiode is ideal for use in a variety of medical diagnostic applications.
The surface-mount packaging allows for easy and convenient integration into new or existing systems.
The device operates in the spectral bandwidth from 400 (min.) to 1100 (max.) nm, with a peak sensitivity of 940 nm.
Typical responsivity is at 0.44 A/W with typical reverse dark current at 5 nA and total capacitance, typically at 25 pF.
Robust and flexible, the ODD-900-002 operating temperatures range from -25 degrees C to +85 degrees C.
The device can be stored at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C for added convenience.
Similar to the recently introduced ODD-900-001 Surface Mount Photodiode with Daylight Filter, the new ODD-900-002 photodiode’s
power dissipation is 150mW at (or below) 25 degrees C (free air temperature). Both new devices also feature a soldering temperature
of 260 degrees C (soldering time is 5 seconds, maximum).
Opto Diode’s new surface mount photodiodes are available now and priced at $1.05 per 1000 (minimum order of 1000).
