SPIE Defense, Security & Sensing 2013, USA: Excelitas Technologies, a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative, customized optoelectronics to OEMs seeking high-performance technology solutions, has introduced two new products to its line of industry-leading high-speed, low-light analog APD LLAM receiver modules, the LLAM-1550E-R2AH and the LLAM-1550E-R08BH.
Featuring enhanced optical damage thresholds and increased 1550 nm peak response, the LLAM-1550E modules offer greater resilience when exposed to higher optical power densities and increased reliability for a broad range of mission-critical applications.
The LLAM-1550E modules from Excelitas were developed specifically for situations requiring a wide dynamic operating range, high frequency response, extremely low-light detection scenarios such as laser imaging detection, combat, range finding and free-space communication.
The modules, hermetically sealed within a TO housing, are capable of detecting extremely low-light signals with a bandwidth up to 200MHz and have an excellent spectral response between 900 – 1700 nm. Excelitas’ LLAM series is offered as a standard, RoHS-compliant, commercial off-the-shelf product and can be customized for bandwidth and gain optimization, use of different APDs, and packages.
