Marktech Expands Standard Silicon Photodiode Offerings to Include New Processes, Active Area Sizes, Case Isolation, and Package Options

Marktech Optoelectronics Standard Silicon Photodiode

August 12, 2019 – Latham, NY, USA  Marktech Optoelectronics, Inc. (www.marktechopto.com)(Marktech), a privately-held, VOSB-certified, leading designer and manufacturer of standard and custom optoelectronics components and assemblies, including UV, visible, near-infrared (NIR), and short-wave infrared (SWIR) emitters, detectors, InP epiwafers, and other materials, has expanded its standard Silicon photodiode offerings to include additional processes, active area sizes, case isolation and packaging options.

Marktech customers can now choose from among four unique processes to accommodate an expanded range of UV and NIR applications. These include the 365 nm UV-enhanced Series 4, for spectral ranges of 300 nm to 1100 nm, further offered in an additional 7.5 mm2 active area size; the general-purpose Series 8, for spectral ranges of 350 nm to 1100 nm; and the UV- and NIR-enhanced Series 11, for spectral ranges of 254 nm to 1100 nm. In terms of new standard mounting options, customers can now specify surface mount units for automated pick-and-place capabilities, in addition to the existing choice of TO-46 (3-pin) or TO-5 (2-pin and 3-pin) metal can package. TO-metal can packages may be further case isolated for reduced noise.

These latest additions to the Marktech standard Silicon photodiode family have been made in direct response to customer feedback, joining the also-recently introduced Silicon avalanche photodiodes and broadband PIN photodiodes. All Marktech Silicon photodiodes feature high sensitivity, low noise, and low dark current, and are both REACH and RoHS compliant. Small-to-medium sized quantities of standard Silicon photodiodes are typically available with 24-hour shipment from stock via Marktech’s longtime distribution partner, Digi-Key Electronics.

Beyond standard product, Marktech Silicon photodiodes are available with a full range of supporting NIR and point source emitters. The photodiodes and LED emitters may be supplied, either as separate stand-alone components; or, combined into a seamless, mechanically and spectrally matched package, such as a reflective switch. Most custom and hybrid designs from Marktech are available in as few as 6-8 weeks from point of prototype approval and may be produced in virtually any-sized quantity, from prototype to OEM volumes. 

Typical applications for Marktech Silicon photodiodes include colorimeters, spectroscopy equipment, fluorescence, photometers, and analytical equipment, within industries such as medical, laboratory and university research, aerospace, robotics, and industrial automation. Please consult Marktech’s Latham, New York-based R&D center for applications engineering and custom product development assistance.

Founded in 1985, Marktech Optoelectronics has built a strong industry pedigree for R&D excellence. As a renowned optoelectronics engineering, design, manufacturing, and test facility, Marktech’s unique core competencies are rooted in its proven capabilities to produce custom LEDs, detector components and assemblies in virtually any-sized quantity. Each Marktech product is designed and manufactured to customer exacting standards and is available with some of the industry’s most competitive lead times. The company’s engineering team also has the necessary full in-house capabilities to perform complete electrical and optical characteristics testing, as well as end-to-end examinations of all optical components, from die level to finished product designs. In addition, Marktech is a Cree Solution Provider for high-brightness LEDs and materials. The company is also a member of AIM Photonics.

Marktech Introduces Visible Red LED Emitters for High-Accuracy, High-Reliability Sensing

Marktech Visible Red LED Emitters

Series May be Used as Cost-Effective Drop-in Replacements for Existing Industry Models

July 31, 2019 – Latham, NY, USA Marktech Optoelectronics, Inc. (www.marktechopto.com)(Marktech), a privately-held, VOSB-certified leading designer and manufacturer of standard and custom optoelectronics components and assemblies, including UV, visible (VIS), near-infrared (NIR), and short-wave infrared (SWIR) emitters, detectors, InP epiwafers and other materials, today announced the global market introduction of the Model MTE6063M-UHR, a new family of visible red LED emitters, designed to provide high-accuracy, high-reliability sensing within a variety of applications.

Marktech Model MTE6063M-UHR visible red LED emitters offer high output power, typically 27.5 mW, along with a wide radiation pattern, and a peak emission wavelength of 630 nm. Each emitter is packaged within a TO-18 metal can with drip lens encapsulation, with the anode electrically connected to the case. Units are lead-free and RoHS compliant. Small-to-medium-sized volumes of standard Model MTE6063M-UHR visible red LED emitters are available with 24-hour shipment from stock via Marktech distribution partner, Digi-Key Electronics. In addition, alternate package and sorting options, as well as custom and hybrid designs, may be produced in as few as 6-8 weeks from the point of customer prototype approval. Please consult Marktech’s Latham, New York-based R&D team for applications assistance.

Typical applications for Model MTE6063M-UHR visible red LED emitters include optical sensing, optical instrumentation, linear and rotary encoders, machine vision and CCD, photointerrupters, light curtains and sensor technology. In addition, depending upon required peak emission wavelength, standard Model MTE6063M-UHR visible red LED emitters may be used as direct drop-in replacements for end-of-life industry GaAsP, AlGaAs or InGaAlP visible LED emitters of identical dimensional footprint.
