LASER COMPONENTS has announced the arrival of its new Silicon APD arrays - the SAH1L12 series. The SAH1L12 is a linear APD array featuring 12 elements in a 14-pin dual-in-line (DIL) package. In addition to the low noise and high speed (typical rise times of 1ns), the detector arrays boast very narrow gaps of just 40µm to reduce dead space and high quantum efficiencies of >88% at 800nm. Crosstalk is kept low at just 50dB.
These devices will find applications primarily as time-of-flight detectors used in range finding, LiDAR and laser scanners.
