NEWBURY PARK, Calif. -- Opto Diode Corporation, a global supplier of advanced photodetectors and high-sensitivity, visible and infrared LEDs, introduces the new NIR / Red Enhanced 6mm² ODA-6W-100M Photodetector-Preamplifier. The near-infrared photodetector-preamp combo features lower noise than discrete detector preamp circuits due to Opto Diode’s proprietary, shielded amplifier electronics. The high-sensitivity device is more compact than discrete solutions, making it ideal for assembly in tight or limited spaces. With a large active area and extremely low noise, the new component operates in the NIR wavelength with response at 940 nm (typically 63 V/uW, min. 55). The standard version features 500 Mohm gain with custom gains also available, per customer specifications. Opto Diode’s photodiode-preamp combo is ideal for low-light-level tasks such as fluorescence. It is also highly suited for applications in the low pW region where discrete detector/preamplifier solutions are not sensitive enough.

Housed in a hermetically-sealed TO-39 can for easy integration, the enhanced infrared component’s operating and storage temperature ranges from -25 degrees C to +100 degrees C. Available for immediate shipping, units are priced at $52.75 each in quantities of 11 pieces.
