Vishay's New Surface-Mount PIN Photodiodes Combine Fast 100 ns Response Times and Miniature 4.24 mm by 5.0 mm by 1.12 mm Package
New Additions to TEMD5xxx Family Provide Excellent Performance With Sensitivity From 400 nm to 1100 nm and Wide ±65° Viewing Angle
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — June 17, 2005 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of four high-performance PIN photodiodes that offer best-in-class sensitivity in a new miniature surface-mount package measuring 4.24 mm by 5.0 mm with a 1.12-mm height profile.
These new additions to the successful 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. Ideal for a broad range of applications in the industrial, automotive, and medical markets, these new devices will 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 nm 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 released today feature a wide ±65° angle of half-sensitivity and fast 100 ns typical response time.
