Surface-Mount PIN Photodiodes
Vishay announces four high-performance PIN photodiodes that offer high sensitivity in a surface-mount package measuring 4.24 × 5.0 mm with a 1.12 mm height profile. These additions to Vishay Semiconductors’ TEMD5xxx line of PIN photodiodes combine high-speed response and excellent sensitivity, enabled by optional daylight filtering and a choice of two large radiant-sensitive areas measuring 7.5 mm2 and 5.7 mm2. Appropriate for a range of applications in the industrial, automotive and medical markets, these devices can be used for high-speed data transfer, light barriers, alarm systems, linear light measurement, glucose meters, automotive rain/light/tunnel sensors, smoke detectors and electronic toll systems. The TEMD5010 and TEMD5020 provide visible-light sensitivity ranging from 400 to 1100 nm. With integrated daylight filters and a peak sensitivity of 850 nm, the TEMD5110 and TEMD5120 are more suitable for detecting infrared light. All four of the devices feature a wide 65 angle of half-sensitivity and fast 100-ns typical response time.
