Marktech Releases InGaAs/InP PIN Photodiodes in Hermetically Sealed 3-Pin TO-46 Metal Can

Press Release Summary:

The Model MTPD1346D-xx Series InGaAs/InP PIN Photodiodes convert broadband light into photocurrents within VIS-SWIR range. The units offer a spectral range of 0.6 μm to 1.7 μm and dark current with an efficiency of 0.6A/W. The photodiodes are offered in active area sizes from 0.1 mm to 3.0 mm in a metal can with flat lens cap and a choice of either thru-hole or surface mounting. They are suitable for applications such as aerospace, automation, autonomous vehicles, high-speed communications and industrial controls.

Marktech Optoelectronics Introduces InGaAs/InP Broadband PIN Photodiodes

Supporting High-Speed Communications, Autonomous Vehicles, Industrial Controls, LIDAR and Wearables

November 26, 2018 – Latham, NY, USA – Marktech Optoelectronics, Inc. (, a privately-held, veteran-owned, 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 MTPD1346D-xx series, a family of InGaAs/InP broadband PIN photodiodes.

Marktech InGaAs/InP PIN photodiodes are designed to effectively convert broadband light into photocurrents within the VIS-SWIR range. In addition to their low noise, high sensitivity and high-speed response, they feature wide standard spectral ranges of 0.6 μm to 1.7 μm (1.7 μm material), low dark current, and high efficiency, typically 0.6A/W. Standard Model MTPD1346D-xx series broadband PIN photodiodes are offered in active area sizes from 0.1 mm to 3.0 mm. Each is packaged within a hermetically sealed, 3-pin TO-46 metal can with flat lens cap, and with choice of either thru-hole or surface mounting.

Small-to-medium-sized quantities of standard broadband PIN photodiodes are typically available with 24-hour shipment from stock via Marktech’s longtime distribution partner, Digi-Key Corporation. In addition, the photodiodes may be seamlessly integrated, together with Marktech SWIR emitters, as a single, compact package. Such custom and hybrid designs may be produced in as few as 6-8 weeks from customer prototype approvals. Please consult Marktech’s Latham, New York corporate headquarters and R&D center for assistance.

Marktech MTPD1346D-xx series InGaAs/InP broadband PIN photodiodes are designed to effectively support a diverse array of applications, particularly where high-speed performance, high data rates, low dark current, small capacitance, and smaller active area sizes are required. Typical applications include aerospace, automation, autonomous vehicles, high-speed communications, industrial controls, LIDAR, medical, material and chemical analysis, security, and wearables, among others.
