Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced the release of four high-performance PIN photodiodes that offer best-in-class sensitivity in a new miniature surface-mount package measuring 4.24-by-5mm, with a 1.12mm height profile.

These new additions to the TEMD5xxx line of PIN photodiodes combine high-speed response and excellent sensitivity, enabled by optional daylight filtering and a choice of two large radiant-sensitive areas measuring 7.5mm? and 5.7mm?, said the company.

Designed for a broad range of applications in the industrial, automotive and medical markets, the TEMD5010 and TEMD5020 provide visible-light sensitivity ranging from 400nm to 1,100nm. Meanwhile, the TEMD5110 and TEMD5120 devices are more suitable for detecting infrared light with its integrated daylight filters and a peak sensitivity of 850nm. All four photodiodes feature a wide 65 angle of half-sensitivity and fast 100ns typical response time.

The new products are packaged in Pb-free constructions in accordance with ELV 2000/53/EC, RoHS 2002/95/EC, and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and each of these plastic packages is compatible with Pb-free reflow solder assembly as specified by product data sheets.

Samples and production quantities of the PIN photodiodes are already available with lead times of six weeks for larger orders.
