Optical Receiver

PHOTONIS USA (Sturbridge, MA) has introduced an optical receiver that is capable of sustaining tens of microamperes of signal current over an indefinite period. It also features an integrated power supply with low power consumption and a small footprint. The receiver promotes an active area of 12 mm, and data rates are expected to reach 2 GHz, with rise times of 220 pS.

Semiconductor Tapered Amplifiers

New Focus™ (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced a new series of semiconductor tapered amplifiers for high-power tunable and fixed-wavelength applications. The VAMP series is designed to accept many fiber-coupled seed sources, providing easy alignment and helping protect the chip from unintentional misalignment. The design includes output isolation, overcurrent protection, and input seed monitoring in every amplifier. These features also provide protection from self-lasing and other hazardous operating conditions. It produces in excess of 1W of tunable signal frequency radiation when seeded with an appropriate source, such as New Focus's Vortex II™ and Velocity® precision tunable lasers.

Infrared LED

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ (Sunnyvale, CA) new infrared DRAGON SFH 4236 LED achieves a typical radiant intensity of 650 mW/sr at a DC current of 1A, more than three times that of the standard IR DRAGON. The device emits at a wavelength of 850nm. The new infrared DRAGON is designed for applications that require narrow radiation characteristics from limited board space, namely automotive applications such as driver and passenger monitoring systems and blind spot detection systems. The 850nm IR DRAGON family consists of the standard version SFH 4232, the stack version SFH 4235 with twice the total radiant flux, and the new SFH 4236 with integrated lens.

Graphics Adapter Board

Matrox Imaging, Dorval, QE, Canada, has introduced the Orion HD graphics adapter with video capture capabilities. It features two independent video paths; each path can connect and switch between RGB/CVBS/YPrPb, DVI-D/HDMI, and SDI signal types through DVI-D and BNC connectivity. It can handle different resolutions and rates including SD, HD, PC, and non-standard. It includes a programmable color space converter for obtaining accurate color representation of the original image. Video outputs are independent of each other as well as independent from the video inputs.
