LASER COMPONENTS has announced that its cost-effective SAH series of avalanche photodiodes is now available in an M1 package. This is the smallest available SMD housing, at only 2mm x 1.4mm.
Optimised for wavelengths of 850nm and 905nm, these components are mainly designed for range finding applications in which larger detectors cannot be installed due to lack of space. Consumer products are another common field of application.
Depending on the version, the diameter of the detector area is 230um or 500um. Like the SAH versions in M2 and M2F packages, these APDs feature low noise and a particularly short response time as well as operating temperatures between -40°C and +85°C.
