Vishays New Surface-Mount PIN Photodiodes Combine Fast 100-ns Response Times and Miniature 4.24 mm by 5.0 mm by 1.12 mm Package

New Additions to TEMD5xxx Family Provide Excellent Performance with Sensitivity from 400 nm to 1100 nm and Wide 65 Viewing Angle

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - June 17, 2005 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of four high-performance PIN photodiodes that offer best-in-class sensitivity in a new miniature surface-mount package measuring 4.24 mm by 5.0 mm with a 1.12-mm height profile.

These new additions to the successful Vishay Semiconductors TEMD5xxx line of PIN photodiodes combine high-speed response and excellent sensitivity, enabled by optional daylight filtering and a choice of two large radiant-sensitive areas measuring 7.5 mm2 and 5.7 mm2. Ideal for a broad range of applications in the industrial, automotive, and medical markets, these new devices will be used for high-speed data transfer, light barriers, alarm systems, linear light measurement, glucose meters, automotive rain/light/tunnel sensors, smoke detectors, and electronic toll systems.

The TEMD5010 and TEMD5020 provide visible-light sensitivity ranging from 400 nm to 1100 nm. With integrated daylight filters and a peak sensitivity of 850 nm, the TEMD5110 and TEMD5120 are more suitable for detecting infrared light. All four of the devices released today feature a wide 65 angle of half-sensitivity and fast 100-ns typical response time.

These devices are packaged in lead (Pb)-free constructions in accordance with ELV 2000/53/EC, RoHS 2002/95/EC, and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and each of these plastic packages is compatible with lead-free reflow solder assembly as specified by product data sheets.

Samples and production quantities of the new PIN photodiodes are available now with lead times of six weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery in 50,000-piece quantities starts at $51.00 per 100 pieces.
