Vishay Presents 4-Quadrant Silicon PIN Photodiode

The sides of the K857PH package are opaque, which eliminates stray light irradiating the photodiodes, resulting in an excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

Vishay Intertechnology’s Optoelectronics group has rolled out a new Automotive Grade 4-quadrant silicon PIN photodiode in a standard surface-mount package.

Vishay PIN PhotodiodeEnabling a variety of sensor and control applications for the automotive, consumer, and industrial markets, the Vishay Semiconductors K857PH combines high photosensitivity with low 0.1 % crosstalk and virtually no tolerance between its segments.

The AEC-Q101 qualified device released features four monolithic PIN diodes — each with an active area of 1.6 mm² — integrated into a single 4.72 mm by 4.72 mm by 0.8 mm top-view, surface-mount package.

The sides of the K857PH package are opaque, which eliminates stray light irradiating the photodiodes, resulting in an excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

The device’s linear photoresponse enables small signal detection for automotive rain or light sensors, industrial automation systems, laser beam alignment, and virtual reality applications.

Built on homogenous technology, the photodiode offers a wide sensitivity range from 710 nm to 1100 nm, a peak wavelength of sensitivity of 950 nm, and a reverse light current of 11 µA per segment at Ee = 1 mW/cm² and a 940 nm wavelength.

The device provides a ± 60° angle of half sensitivity and operates over a temperature range of -40 °C to +110 °C. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the K857PH offers a floor life of 186 h under J-STD-020.
