Future Electronics Announces Availability of New High Speed PIN Photodiode from Vishay

Montreal, Canada – April 30, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced availability of a new high speed silicon PIN photodiode with enhanced sensitivity for visible light, from Vishay Semiconductors.

The new PIN photodiode, part number VEMD5080X01, from Vishay is available in a compact 5 mm by 4 mm top-view, surface-mount package with a low 0.9 mm profile. It offers fast switching times and low capacitance for precise signal detection in wearable devices as well as for medical, industrial, and automotive applications.

With a large radiant-sensitive area and high radiant sensitivity with a reverse light current of 45 µA and dark current of 0.2 nA, the device detects visible and near infrared radiation across a wide range from 350 nm to 1100 nm, a 30% increase compared to prior-generation solutions.

The VEMD5080X01 is tested to AEC-Q101 standards for Automotive Grade semiconductors, is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and has a moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 4 in accordance with J-STD-020 for a floor life of 72 hours.

Samples and production quantities of the VEMD5080X01 are available through Future Electronics, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks for large orders.
