Marktech Optoelectronics’ Model MTPD1346D-xx series of InGaAs/InP broadband PIN photodiodes are designed to effectively convert broadband light into photocurrents within the VIS-SWIR range. In addition to their low noise, high sensitivity, and high-speed response, they feature wide standard spectral ranges of 0.6 μm to 1.7 μm (1.7 μm material), low dark current, and high efficiency, typically 0.6A/W. Standard Model MTPD1346D-xx series broadband PIN photodiodes are offered in active area sizes from 0.1 mm to 3.0 mm. Each is packaged within a hermetically sealed, 3-pin TO-46 metal can with flat lens cap, and with choice of either thru-hole or surface mounting.

The MTPD1346D-xx series photodiodes are designed to effectively support a diverse array of applications, particularly where high-speed performance, high data rates, low dark current, small capacitance, and smaller active area sizes are required. Typical applications include aerospace, automation, autonomous vehicles, high-speed communications, industrial controls, LiDAR, medical, material, chemical analysis, security, and wearables.

Small-to-medium-sized quantities of standard broadband PIN photodiodes are typically available with 24-hour shipment from stock via Marktech’s distribution partner, Digi-Key Corporation. In addition, the photodiodes may be seamlessly integrated, together with Marktech SWIR emitters, as a single, compact package. Such custom and hybrid designs may be produced in as few as 6-8 weeks from customer prototype approvals.
