Avalanche Photodiode Receiver

Voxtel (Beaverton, OR) has introduced an avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver with 1-GHz bandwidth and a large 200-μm diameter optical area. The RIP1-NJAC APD photoreceiver integrates the low-excess-noise SCM-APD with a low-noise transimpedance amplifier (TIA). It offers a maximum responsivity over 50 A/W at 1550 nm, with operating gain up to 50. A single-stage thermoelectric cooler is included to eliminate temperature-induced gain variation. An optional fiber pigtail is available.

Logarithmic Sensor

New Imaging Technologies (Evry, France) has introduced the MD1-10-B logarithmic sensor, which uses an array of photodiodes operated in photovoltaic mode. In most logarithmic imager designs, linear photo current passes through a MOS transistor whose exponential characteristic transforms photo current into a logarithmic-like voltage output signal. In NIT’s MAGIC approach, the array of photodiodes is operated in photovoltaic mode and the open-circuit voltage across the p/n junction is proportional to the exact and pure logarithmic value of the incident light intensity. When equipped with the sensor, the MCD1-10-BW analog camera modules provide dynamic range performance greater than 120 dB.
