Photodiodes and Avalanche Photodiodes
Increased functionality and integration are driving strong growth in the OEM applications for these critical photonic components.
Silicon photodiodes are used to convert light into an electrical signal (voltage or current). As a result of solid state reliability, low cost and volume manufacturing, these devices are used in virtually every type of OEM photonic application. Some disparate examples include semiconductor test and measurement, spectroscopy, biomedical assay and diagnostics, and of course telecom.
