Mouser signs global distribution deal with Advanced Photonix

1 min read

Mouser Electronics has announced that it has signed a global distribution agreement with Advanced Photonix, a division of OSI Optoelectronics.

Advanced Photonix is a global provider of photonics, optoelectronics, and advanced electronic systems for aerospace and defence, medical, and industrial OEMs that require a combination of high-reliability, and performance technology.

Mouser is now stocking the company’s advanced silicon, InGaAs P-I-N, APD photodiodes and hybrids, and CdS LDR photocells following the agreement.

Advanced Photonix designs, develops, and fabricates complex photodetectors, emitters and photoresistors. With state-of-the-art, in-house semiconductor fabrication services, it is said to lead the industry in providing among the most reliable optoelectronics components and subsystems.

The Advanced Photonix UV enhanced silicon photodiode, for example, offers a high-performance, cost-effective solution for applications requiring highly sensitive devices in the UV region. The device features low noise, high shunt resistance, and increased response with an active area diameter of 2.54 mm.

Red enhanced P-I-N and quadrant silicon photodiodes are available in various features and packages for a wide range of applications. The devices feature high accuracy with a large active area and low crosstalk, ideal for accurate nulling, centring, or measuring small positional changes.

The Blue enhanced P-I-N photodiodes offer high responsivity, large active area, and low noise. The devices are ideal for high-speed response applications in the blue region of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Advanced Photonix CdS photocells are light-dependent resistors (LDRs) with sensitivity in the visible light region from 400 nm to 700 nm. The LDRs, available in a wide range of resistances, decrease resistance as the light level increases with efficiency characteristics like those of the human eye.
