Marktech Optoelectronics Announces Multi-wavelength Emitters, Detectors and LEDs for Wearables

Marktech Optoelectronics Wearables

December 3, 2018 – Latham, NY, USA  Marktech Optoelectronics, Inc. (www.marktechopto.com)(Marktech), a privately-held and veteran-owned leading designer and manufacturer of standard and custom optoelectronics components and assemblies, including UV, visible, near-infrared (NIR), and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) emitters, detectors, InP epiwafers and other materials, today announced its dedicated offerings for wearables.

Marktech’s standard and custom emitters and detectors, in both multi-wavelength and hybrid designs and in UV, visible, infrared, and SWIR ranges, are routinely specified within consumer- and hospital-grade flexible, stretchable and wearable devices. Some of the most common wearable applications supported by Marktech include consumer-grade fitness trackers; high-end cardiac, oxygen, and blood pressure monitors; audiological diagnostic devices, used to detect inner ear abnormalities and damage; non-invasive optical chemical sensing; and indoor/outdoor UV-level detection.

For wearable designs requiring more advanced onboard monitoring and detection capabilities, Marktech offers a number of multi-wavelength emitter-detector combinations. These combinations may be seamlessly integrated into a single package along with a multi-wavelength range detector. In addition, Marktech’s Silicon and InGaAs photodetectors may be similarly combined with its GaP Schottky UV photodiodes, creating an expanded spectral detection range of approximately 150 nm to 1750 nm. Optoelectronics assemblies are available in plastic, ceramic, and glass-to-metal (hybrid) package types. A number of options are also available to effectively address specialty requirements for hermetic sealing, temperature extremes, and humid or moisture-rich environments.

In addition, Marktech high-brightness LEDs and LED emitters are routinely specified for wearable displays and remote physiological monitoring requirements. Standard LED emitters are offered in wavelengths from 280 nm to 1720 nm, with expanded wavelengths by special request. These Marktech LED emitters can be further optimized for low power consumption. Such optimizations can result in increased wearable device battery life, while still maintaining required output levels. The achievement of operating currents of 2 mA or less are also possible. In applications requiring the incorporation of a white LED, an assortment of color temperature and CRI are available, as well as lower-profile direct-attach (DA) type chip packages. Please consult the Marktech R&D team for applications assistance.

All design and testing of Marktech optoelectronics components and assemblies is conducted from the company’s worldwide R&D center in Latham (Albany), New York, USA. There, Marktech is able to design, develop and test optoelectronics components to customer exacting standards. Each new wearables design draws upon Marktech’s own vast portfolio of related success stories and applies the acquired value-added expertise of lessons learned. Wearable optoelectronics components from Marktech may be produced in virtually any sized quantity, from prototype to OEM volumes, with competitive lead times. Marktech also has the necessary full in-house capabilities to perform complete electrical and optical characteristics testing, from die-level to finished product designs, as well as complete end-to-end examinations of related components and assemblies. Wearables-specific applications engineering support is also available from one of the industry’s most experienced teams.

What types of Silicon photodetectors does Marktech manufacture in-house?

(Each week, we’ll be featuring a spotlight Question and Answer, of those most commonly asked by Marktech customers. We hope that you find this content helpful for your decision-making. Have a question you’d like answered? We’d love to hear from you! Contact us at info@marktechopto.com )

The Answer:

Marktech offers multiple Silicon photodetector types, both standard and custom, supporting a variety of requirements. Each Silicon photodetector type manufactured by Marktech offers its own advantages, of course, depending upon the specifics of the intended installation environment. Firstly, Marktech designs and manufactures standard and Silicon photodiodes and Silicon phototransistors, with spectral sensitivities from 350 nm to 1100 nm, for visible and near infrared applications requiring low noise, high speed and high sensitivity. The company is also offering a new line of UV-enhanced photodetectors, with improved spectral sensitivities in the 150 nm to 570 nm range.

In addition, all of the Silicon wafers and chips manufactured by Marktech are optimized to ensure uniform, consistent performance and high reliability for their intended application. Marktech further offers them with several cost-effective customization capabilities. Just a few examples include operational voltage selection, wavelength specific band-pass filtering, and hybridization.

Marktech also designs and manufactures GaP Schottky photodetectors, specially optimized for high-accuracy UV photodetection up to the visible spectrum, or 150 nm to 550 nm. They also manufacture InGaAs PIN photodiode chips, in active area sizes from 0.1 to 3.0 mm, with spectral sensitivities from 600 nm to 2600 nm. And finally, Marktech offers foundry services for the epitaxial growth of high-reliability SWIR epiwafers, of 1.0 μm to 2.6 μm cut-off wavelength, with InP material as the base substrate. They are offered in 2″, 3″ and 4″ diameters. A little known fact, Marktech remains one of only a few companies in the world offering SWIR.

So, should your Silicon photodetector requirements call for something that’s perhaps more “out of the box” than “off the shelf”, the experienced team at Marktech can help.  Contact Marktech today for an applications assessment.

New Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes for Low-Level Light and Short Pulse Detection

Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes from Marktech ElectronicsJuly 24, 2018 – Latham, NY, USA – Marktech Optoelectronics (www.marktechopto.com)(Marktech), a privately-held, veteran-owned, leading designer and manufacturer of standard and custom optoelectronics components and assemblies, including UV visible, near-infrared (NIR), and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) emitters, detectors, InP epiwafers and other materials, today announced the availability of its standard and custom Silicon avalanche photodiodes (Si APD’s), in quantities from prototype to OEM volumes.

Marktech Silicon avalanche photodiodes offer low-level light and short pulse detections of wavelengths between 400 nm and 1100 nm. They are offered with choice of either a 230 µm or 500 µm active diameter; optical sensitivity optimizations for 800 nm or 905 nm peak response; an internal gain mechanism; high gain at low bias voltage; extremely fast rise times, as low as 300 ps; frequency response to 1 GHz; and a low breakdown voltage of 80V to 200V. Units are also RoHS compliant.

Standard Silicon avalanche photodiodes are offered with multiple customization options, including operational voltage selection and Vbr binning, wavelength specific band-pass filtering, and hybridization. Package options include hermetically sealed TO metal cans, plastic, and cost-effective SMD (LCC) types, with additional customization by request. Standard Silicon avalanche photodiodes in small-to-medium sized volumes are typically available with 24-hour shipment via Marktech’s longtime distribution partner, Digi-Key Corporation. In addition, custom Si APD units from Marktech are typically available in as few as 6-8 weeks from prototype approvals. Please consult the factory for details.

As precision measurement devices, Marktech Silicon avalanche photodiodes offer low dark current and significantly higher sensitivities, including higher NIR spectral sensitivity, than can be achieved with a standard photodiode. This allows the Silicon avalanche photodiodes to serve as the semiconductor near-equivalent to photomultipliers within a myriad of applications. It also allows the Silicon avalanche photodiodes to accurately detect weaker light intensities, in applications where higher bandwidth or internal gain may be required, in order to overcome higher preamplifier noise levels. Typical applications for Marktech Silicon avalanche photodiodes include laser counting, x-ray spectroscopy, optical data communications, Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) instrumentation, optical rangefinders, spatial light transmitters, scintillation detectors, fast receiver modules, particle detectors, industrial surveying equipment, automated toll collectors, astronomy observation devices, and vehicle self-braking and self-parking systems.
