PARIS – Vishay Intertechnology, Inc.
announced it has introduced automotive-qualified PIN photodiodes and NPN planar
phototransistors. Available in 1.8-mm gullwing and reverse gullwing
surface-mount packages, the photo detectors are claimed to be sensitive to
visible and near-infrared radiation and to offer a compact footprint of 2.3 mm
by 2.3 mm by 2.8 mm.
Vishay said the AEC-Q101-qualified
VEMD25x0X01 high-speed silicon PIN photodiodes and VEMT25x0X01 NPN
phototransistors are suitable for light curtains, miniature switches,
and photo-interrupters in metering, automotive and printer applications.
also target detectors for visible and infrared emitter sources in
Vishay noted that photodiodes offer
a 12-µA light current and spectral sensitivity range of 350 nm to 1120 nm,
while the phototransistors offer a light current of 6 mA and spectral
sensitivity range of 470 nm to 1090 nm. The VEMD25x0X01 and VEMT25x0X01 devices
feature a 1 nA dark current, ± 15° angle of half sensitivity, and temperature
range of - 40 °C to + 100 °C, and have a matching IR emitter in the
high-intensity, high-speed VSMB20x0X01.
