Plastic Molded and Surface Mount Photodiodes
OSI Optoelectronics offers a line of high quality and reliability plastic encapsulated photodiodes. These molded devices are available in a variety of shapes and sizes of photodetectors and packages, including flat and lensed side lookers as well as a surface mount version (SOT- 23). They are excellent for mounting on PCB and hand held devices in harsh environments. They have an excellent response in the NIR spectrum and are also available with visible blocking compounds, transmitting only in the 700-1100 nm range. They offer fast switching time, low capacitance as well as low dark current. They can be utilized in both photoconductive and photovoltaic modes of operation.
