HAWTHORNE, Calif. – OSI Optoelectronics, an OSI Systems company in Hawthorne, Calif. is introducing infrared-sensitive pigtail-packaged high-speed indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) photodiodes for high-speed optical communications and medical applications.
These photodiodes offer active areas of 75 microns and 120 microns, with single- and multi-mode fiber aligned optically either to a hermetically sealed InGaAs diode in a TO-46 cap package or can be connected to the InGaAs diode mounted on a ceramic substrate.
With high responsivity from 900 1700 nanometers, low capacitance, and low back reflection, the OSI family of pigtail photodiodes are available in a variety of configurations with different terminations and different fibers.
The electro-optical components are for high-bit-rate communications receivers used in LAN, MAN, and WAN, as well as for laser-assisted surgeries for ophthalmology. Other uses include optical power monitoring and instrumentation, GPS gyroscopes.
The devices are available with angle polished connectors and custom packages. Operating temperatures range from 0 75 degrees Celsius. For more information contact OSI Optoelectronics online at www.osioptoelectronics.com.
