Series 9
Add to note list

Series 9: with enhanced NIR sensitivity – 900 nm

These avalanche photodiodes were developed specifically for the laser radar system LIDAR and laser rangefinders. The series provides fundamental technology for the development of arrays with multiple individual sensors, e.g. 8, 16, 32 pixels.

Special features
  • Fast rise time in 900 nm range
  • Low gain slope above bias voltage
  • Potentially low bias operation
  • Low temperature coefficient
  • Active surface diameter of up to 5 mm
