Optical PINFET Receivers offer adjustable sensitivity.

Press Release Summary:

LDPF and LDPW series PINFET Optical Receivers integrate PIN photodiode and discrete transimpedance amplifier stage. Light is coupled into detector stage through multimode optical fiber pigtail that allows coupling with either single or multimode fiber systems. Sensitivity and dynamic range can be customized to meet user requirements. Equipped with automatic gain control, LDPW series provides dynamic range operation up to 0 dBm.

Laser Diode Incorporated (LDI) Offers High Sensitivity - Wide Dynamic Range Optical PINFET Receivers

Harrisburg, PA, Feb. 22, 2004 - Laser Diode Incorporated (LDI), a unit of Tyco Electronics offers LDPF and LDPW series of PINFET Optical Receivers. Suited for use in telecommunications, line-terminating equipment, repeaters, supervisory channel, optical gyros, and sensor systems, they exhibit high sensitivity and wide dynamic range, which can be customized to meet the user requirements. Options include automatic gain control (AGC), a silicon-based detector for 850nm applications, and singlemode optical fiber coupled pigtail.

The devices integrate a PIN photodiode and discrete transimpedance amplifier stage. Light is coupled into the detector stage through a multimode optical fiber pigtail that allows coupling with either single-or multimode, fiber systems. The LDPF series receivers' sensitivity is maximized at a standard bandwidth or a custom bandwidth based on the application. The LDPW series PINFET optical receivers include AGC and provide dynamic range operation up to 0 dBm.
