QVGA InGaAs matrix sensor half price
ANDANTA's uncooled QVGA InGaAs matrix sensor FPA320x256-C has been significantly reduced in price: the price is now only about half as much as it used to be (offer initially limited to the end of 2020).
ANDANTA's new FPA64x64-C image sensor, the market launch of which is imminent, will be even much cheaper. The sensor, also an uncooled one, has a spatial resolution of 64 x 64 pixels with a pixel size of 40 µm, which leads to an active sensor area of 2.56 x 2.56 mm. The usable spectral range reaches from 900 nm to 1.7 µm. A 32-pin ceramic LCC design was chosen as package for the sensor.
With the significant price reductions of its InGaAs image sensors, ANDANTA hopes to be able to open up new fields of application in near-infrared image recording to its customers, specialized camera manufacturers, especially in spectroscopy, material sorting, agriculture, security technology, leisure industry, medicine and biology.
InGaAs Quadrant PIN Photodiode Chip
ANDANTA’s InGaAs PIN Photodiode family is now complemented by a Quadrant PIN Photodiode Chip with an aperture size of 1860 µm, an active area of 0.625 x 4 mm2 and a gap of 75 µm
between the individual 4 quadrants. The overall mechanical chip dimensions amount to 2055 µm x 2055 µm x 300 µm.
As usual for InGaAs, a standard spectral range of 0.9 - 1.7 µm is covered, while on demand 1.2 - 2.2 μm wavelength range is also available. The responsivity at 0 V varies from typically 0.2 A/W (@ 0.85 µm) to 0.90 A/W (@ 1.30 µm) and to 1.0 A/W (@ 1.55 µm).
The highly reliable planar device PIN2000Q-17-D has a dark current of typ. 0.5 nA @ -5 V reverse voltage. The Saturation Power is 4.5 mW (@ 1.55 µm, 0 V, -0.2 dB).
With a capacitance of typ. 70 pF (@ -5 V), the 3dB Bandwidth reaches typ. 30 MHz (@ -5 V, 50 Ω).
The Operating & Storage Temperature is specified as -40 °C - +85 °C.
Key applications include Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), beam alignment, light spot position detection and remote optical control.
