Avalanche Photodiode Cuts Noise, Boosts Sensitivity

The LAPD 1550-30R embarks as a low-noise, high-sensitivity, and high-speed 30-µm InGaAs avalanche photodiode. It operates at 3.5 GHz and features a voltage breakdown (Vbr) curve of 30V minimum to 40V maximum with a typical response of 37V. Suitable for range-finding, optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDRs), and high-sensitivity line receivers, the LAPD 1550-30R resides in a hermetically-sealed, three-pin TO46 package with a lens cap and operates from 1260 nm to 1650 nm with a typical operational wavelength at 1550 nm. Operating temperature ranges from -40ºC to +85ºC.
