Vishay Optoelectronics has released two new surface-mount Automotive Grade silicon PIN photodiodes, now available through New Yorker Electronics. In a compact 0805 case size with a low 0.7 mm profile, these Vishay diodes are 0.15 mm lower than prior generation devices.
Offered in black packages, the opaque sidewalls of the Vishay Semiconductors VEMD4010X01 and VEMD4110X01 eliminate unwanted side illumination to increase their signal to noise ratio.
The Vishay photodiodes from New Yorker Electronics are used in photo detection applications such as solar load sensors; automotive rain, light, and tunnel sensors; light barriers for elevators, garage doors, and industrial equipment; and reflective sensors for touch-less faucets, toilets, and trash cans.
For the detection of visible and near-infrared radiation, the VEMD4010X01 offers a sensitivity range from 550nm to 1040nm. For 740nm to 1040nm infrared applications, the VEMD4110X01 features daylight blocking filters and is matched with 830nm to 950nm IR emitters. They eliminate unwanted side illumination and increase the signal-to-noise ratio.
The newly released Vishay Silicon PIN Photodiodes feature a sensitive area of 0.42 mm2. They provide a reverse light current of 2.4 µA and a low dark current of 1 nA. The device possesses fast response times and ± 60° angles of half-sensitivity. The moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 3 is by J-STD-020 for a floor life of 168 hours.
