Silicon PIN Photodiode
S153P is a high speed and high sensitive PIN photo-
diode in a hermetically sealed short TO–5 package.
Due to its flat, waterclear glass window the device is
sensitive to visible and near infrared radiation.
The large active area combined with a flat case gives
a high sensitivity at a wide viewing angle.
D High photo sensitivity
D Large radiant sensitive area A=7.5 mm2
D Fast response times
D Small junction capacitance
D For photodiode and photovoltaic operation
D Hermetically sealed case
D Wide angle of half sensitivity ϕ = ± 55°
D Suitable for visible and near infrared radiation
D Suitable to couple with glass fiber
Applications requiring high speed and high sensitive PIN photodiodes in hermetically sealed packages.
