Excelitas expands InGaAs based APD family

New product innovations in Avalanche Photodiodes offer an enhanced optical damage threshold and increased reliability
Excelitas Technologies has introduced two new products to its line of high-speed, low-light analogue APD LLAM receiver modules, the LLAM-1550E-R2AH and the LLAM-1550E-R08BH.

The modules feature enhanced optical damage thresholds and an increased 1550nm peak response.   

Excelitas says the LLAM-1550E modules offer greater resilience when exposed to higher optical power densities and increased reliability for a broad range of mission-critical applications.

The LLAM-1550E modules were developed specifically for situations requiring a wide dynamic operating range, high frequency response, extremely low-light detection scenarios such as laser imaging detection, combat, range finding and free-space communication.

The hermetically sealed components within a TO housing, are capable of detecting extremely low-light signals with a bandwidth up to 200MHz and have an excellent spectral response between 900 - 1700nm.

Excelitas’ LLAM series is offered as a standard, RoHS-compliant, commercial off-the-shelf product. It can also be customised for bandwidth and gain optimisation, with the use of different APDs and packages.

“We are proud of our legacy in providing mission-critical solutions to our defence and aerospace industries,” says Michael Ersoni, senior vice president and general manager, Excelitas Technologies’ global detection business.

“By extending our line of APD offerings with the new LLAM-1550E modules, we continue to deliver innovative, customisable products that meet the specific needs of our customers,” he continues.

Excelitas will be displaying the LLAM-1550E modules at the 2013 SPIE Defence, Security, and Sensing show (Booth #1842) from April 30th to May 2nd, 2013, in Baltimore, Maryland.
