UDT Sensors Introduces a New Family of Plastic Encapsulated Photodiodes
Hawthorne, CA - January 8, 2004 - UDT Sensors, Inc., a subsidiary of OSI SYSTEMS (Nasdaq: OSIS), announces a new, low cost, plastic encapsulated silicon photodiode line. The new silicon detectors incorporate a short pass filter which blocks wavelengths longer than 700nm. Filtering of this nature has been previously accomplished by using a combination of costly, externally-mounted glass filters. UDT's innovative design meets cost-sensitive needs of the commercial market while reducing the over all physical size. The miniaturization of these plastic encapsulated photodiodes assists engineers in their pursuit of micro-technology. UDT Sensors offers a multitude of standard and custom combinations for this new silicon photodiode series. Samples are currently available for evaluation.
