The NXIR-5C from Opto Diode Corporation is a red to near-infrared (NIR) enhanced photodiode with a circular active area of 5 mm2. The photodiode has spectral response from 320 nm to 1100 nm. It provides superior responsivity with low reverse bias and high sensitivity of 0.62 A/W at 850 nm and 0.35 A/W at 1064 nm. The photodiode has low dark current at 1nA, low capacitance of 5 pico-farads (pF) at 10 volts, and high shunt resistance greater than 100 MO.
It is available in a custom 4.7 mm x 4.9 mm ceramic carrier surface-mount device (SMD) package. The robust package features an AR-coated window that provides greater than 98% transmission. The NIR-enhanced detector is suitable for laser monitoring, medical diagnostic equipment, industrial automation, scientific measurement, and military applications. The SMD is compliant with RoHS and REACH standards and is available on tape and reel.
