Marktech Introduces New High Speed InGaAs PIN Diode
SMD-packaged diode offers high sensitivity and high reliability with a response of 2Gbps and a range of 600nm to 1750nm
Marktech Optoelectronics, a manufacturers of UV, visible, near-infrared, and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) emitters and detectors, has announced the introduction of its new high speed InGaAs PIN photodiode, the MTSM1346SMF2-100. This PIN photodiode offers both high sensitivity and high reliability with a speed response of 2Gbps and a spectral range of 600nm to 1750nm.
The MTSM1346SMF2-100 is Marktech's first device to use the company's newly designed SMD package. The 'Atlas' is a hermetically sealed seam welded ceramic package that offers higher reliability than current standard thru-hole types. This unique 5mm x 5mm surface mount package is constructed using a glass to ceramic seam welded process and is reflow solderable. Its compact size and shape allow for dense packing and placement in small areas. Among the benefits of using this package are for applications requiring no moisture or oxygen ingress, wide or narrow Lambertian radiation pattern (flat or domed type lens), and a package capable of accommodating multiple chips.
According to William Moore, president of Marktech: "The MTSM1346SMF2-100 is the first product introduction utilising our new Atlas SMD package. It will be followed by both standard and custom designed components in the UV, Visible, Near IR, and SWIR range. Due to its lifetime and reliability advantages this package offers advantages for the medical, industrial, high speed communications, aerospace, and security industries."
