Photovoltaic Solderable Chips
Photovoltaic, VBIAS = 0V
The Solderable photodiode chip series offer a low cost approach to applications requiring large active area photo detectors with or without flying leads for ease of assembly and / or situations where the detector is considered "disposable". They have low capacitance, moderate dark currents, wide dynamic ranges and high open circuit voltages. These detectors are available with two 3" long leads soldered to the front (anode) and back (cathode). The Photovoltaic Solderable Series (SXXVL) are used for low noise applications.
All of the devices are also available in chip form without any leads. For ordering subtract suffix 'L' from the model number, e.g. S-100V.
For large signal outputs, the detectors can be connected directly to a current meter or across a resistor for voltage measurements. Alternately, the output can be measured directly with an oscilloscope or with an amplifier. Please refer to the "Photodiode Characteristics" section for further details.
