CAMARILLO, CA --- Opto Diode Corporation introduces the NXIR-RF100C, a red and near-infrared (NIR) enhanced, reduced-footprint, surface-mount device (SMD) photodiode. Designed for a wide variety of applications, the new photodetector has spectral response from 320 to 1100 nm and can be used for laser-monitoring, rain, and sun-sensor applications. The rugged package is designed specifically for environments requiring extended temperature range from -40 °C to +125 °C and has an anti-reflective (AR) coated window that provides greater than 98 percent transmission. The new SMD expands the company’s popular high-performance, through-hole photodiode packages, allowing designers to reduce space and cost.
The NXIR-RF100C has an active area of 1 mm2 in a small 3 mm x 3.5 mm surface-mount package. The new device has high responsivity of 0.62 A/W @ 850 nm and 0.35 A/W @ 1064 nm. It also has low capacitance of 3 pico-farads (pF) at 0 volts, high shunt resistance, greater than 200 MΩ, and very low dark current at 0.1nA. Opto Diode’s NXIR-RF100C detectors are available in high volume on tape and reel.
