The VEMD6010X01 and VEMD6110X01 automotive-grade, high-speed silicon PIN photodiodes in clear- and black-epoxy 1206 surface-mount packages measuring 4 mm x 2 mm x 1.05 mm provide a high reverse light current of 9.5 µA and a very low dark current of 1 nA. For the detection of visible and near infrared radiation, the VEMD6010X01 is a clear epoxy device with a wide sensitivity range of 450 nm to 1100 nm. For 750 nm to 1050 nm infrared applications, the VEMD6110X01 is a black epoxy device with a daylight blocking filter matched with 830 nm to 950 nm IR emitters. Pricing for either device starts at $0.35 each/5,000. Data sheets are available at:
