25µm-pitch Wide Aperture Spectroscopic Photodiode Arrays
AMI Semiconductor’s HSN series is family of self-scanning photodiode solid-state linear imaging arrays. These photodiode sensors
employ AMI Semiconductor’s proprietary CMOS image sensing technology to integrate the sensors into a single monolithic chip. These
sensors are optimally designed for applications in spectroscopy. Accordingly, these sensors contain a linear array of photodiodes with
an optimized geometrical aspect ratio (25µm aperture pitch x 2500µm aperture width) for helping to maintain mechanical stability in
spectroscopic instruments and for providing a large light-capturing ability. The family of sensors consists of photodiode arrays of various
lengths, 256, 512, and 1024 pixels.
The HSN photodiode arrays are mounted in 22-pin ceramic side-brazed dual-in-line packages, which fit in standard DIP sockets. A
diagram of its pin-out configuration is seen in Figure 1.
