Opto Diode’s New High Speed Ø5 mm Photodiode - SXUV20HS1

Optimized to provide stable responsivity for consistent, repeatable measurements, it is ideal for any high-speed laser power monitoring applications.

Sept. 25, 2014 - Newbury Park, CA - Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), a division of ITW, announces the SXUV20HS1, a high-speed photodiode with a Ø 5 mm circular active area,. The new detector is ideal for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) detection covering 1 to 200 nm. It is designed to dissipate the optical energy of high-powered UV lasers without the typical measurement degradation that occurs with prolonged exposure to UV. Optimized to provide stable responsivity for consistent, repeatable measurements, it is ideal for any high-speed laser power monitoring applications.


Highly stable, the SXUV20HS1 sensitive area is 19.7 mm2, grid lines are at 5 microns with the pitch at 100 microns. Shunt resistance is 5 MOhms and capacitance is typically 200 pF to a maximum of 800 pF. The high-speed device parameters include reverse breakdown voltage at 160 V (minimum), dark current of 100 nA (under test conditions of 150 V), and a rise time of 2 nanoseconds (maximum).

RoHS and REACH compliant, Opto Diode's new photodiode is well-suited for applications such as photolithography, where tight control of the laser's output, a fast response, and measurement stability are critical.

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.
