Opto Diode Introduces a 100 mm2 Photodiode- SXUV100

The highly sensitive device permits detection to 1 nm, and provides a remarkably stable response after exposure to EUV/UV conditions.

January 6, 2014 - Newbury Park, CA - Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), a division of ITW, and a member of the ITW Photonics Group, announces a new single active area photodiode featuring 100 mm2 - the SXUV100. The highly sensitive device permits detection to 1 nm, and provides a remarkably stable response after exposure to EUV/UV conditions. Best applications include detection of 13.5 nm wavelengths or any high power density source monitoring between 1 nm - 150 nm.


The new photodiode is operational from 1nm to 1000 nm, with peak photon responsivity at 0.27A/W (at 1 nm) and 0.33 A/W (at 850 nm). Shunt resistance (Rsh) @ ± 10 mV is 10 MOhms (min.), the capacitance is typically 6 nanofarads (nF), and the response time is typically 250 nanoseconds.

The new SXUV100's operating and storage temperatures range from -10 degrees C to 40 degrees C (ambient) and from -20 degrees C to 80 degrees C (in nitrogen or vacuum conditions). The maximum junction temperature is 70 degrees C and the lead-soldering temperature is 260 degrees C at 0.080 in. from the case for 10 seconds.

Opto Diode's new 100 mm2 photodiodes are available in single or volume quantities, and shipping now. For more information about Opto Diode's new SXUV detector series, please visit: http://optodiode.com/pdf/SXUV100.pdf.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
