Linear APD Arrays Ease LiDAR Measuring

The LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group expands its standard range of linear Si APD arrays with LCC44 housings containing 8 and 16 elements. The SMD components can be mounted on circuit boards, while also providing enough space for the integrated multi-channel amplifier circuit. Their operation requires just the voltage for the array and 5V for the electronics.


The arrays comprise the use of monolithic fast, low-noise avalanche photodiodes with gaps of 40 μm between the elements. They feature a very low temperature coefficient and their sensitivity is optimized for the NIR range between 800 nm and 905 nm. For more details, checkout the Si APD arrays product page.
