Surface Mount Automotive Grade Silicon PIN Photodiodes

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced VEMD4010X01 and VEMD4110X01, two new surface-mount, Automotive Grade silicon PIN photodiodes in the compact 0805 case size with a low 0.7mm profile. The VEMD4010X01 can be used for detecting visible and near-infrared radiation with a wide sensitivity range from 550 nm to 1040 nm. For 740 nm to 1040 nm infrared applications, the VEMD4110X01 features a daylight blocking filter and is matched with 830 nm to 950 nm IR emitters.

The new devices are designed with a sensitive area of 0.42 mm2, a reverse light current of 2.4 µA, and a low dark current of 1 nA. Both VEMD4010X01 and VEMD4110X01 have fast response time, ± 60° angles of half-sensitivity, and 910 nm wavelengths of peak sensitivity. With an operating temperature range of -40 °C to +110 °C, the devices were designed as RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.

The new photodiodes are AEC-Q101 Qualified and provide a moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 3, hence they are suitable for photo-detecting applications such as solar load sensors; automotive rain, light, and tunnel sensors; light barriers for elevators, garage doors, and industrial equipment; and reflective sensors for touchless faucets, toilets, and trash cans.
