Hamamatsu Corp. has introduced its S8890 series of silicon avalanche photodiodes (Si APDs) that cover the 400nm to 1,100nm spectral response range and achieves peak sensitivity of 67A/W at 940nm.

Available in TO-5 and TO-8 packages, the Si APDs are suited for YAG laser detection and applications that require detection of long wavelength light. They have a dark current value ranging from 0.2nA to 15nA and a terminal capacitance between 0.2pF to 8pF. Available active areas are 0.03, 0.019, 0.78, 1.77, and 7mm?.

The S8890 series has a starting price of $52 in small OEM quantities.
