Series 5: high speed NIR-sensitive photodiodes

These high-speed epitaxial photodiodes are ideal for VIS and NIR applications with low operating voltages.

Special features
  • Photodiodes with epitaxial layer structure for fast rise times at low reverse voltages.
  • Epitaxial layer thickness optimized for highest speed and maximum sensitivity at 800 nm.
  • Low dark current even at high operating temperatures.
