VEMD5080X01 High Speed PIN Photodiode Delivers Precise Signal Detection, Enables Slim Sensor Designs for Wearables

Vishay broadens its optoelectronics portfolio with the introduction of a new high speed silicon PIN photodiode with enhanced sensitivity for visible light. Offered in a compact 5 mm by 4 mm top-view, surface-mount package with a low 0.9 mm profile, the Vishay Semiconductors VEMD5080X01 offers fast switching times and low capacitance for precise signal detection in wearable devices and medical, industrial, and automotive applications.

Offering a large radiant-sensitive area measuring 7.5 mm2 — and high radiant sensitivity with a reverse light current of 45 µA and dark current of 0.2 nA — the device released today detects visible and near infrared radiation over a wide sensitivity range from 350 nm to 1100 nm. For green LEDs, the VEMD5080X01’s sensitivity represents a 30 % improvement over previous-generation solutions.
