Excelitas’ C30737 Series of Silicon APDs provide high-responsivity between 500 nm and 1000 nm, as well as extremely fast rise times at all wavelengths with a frequency response up to more than 1GHz.
The standard versions are available either in a compact surface-mount “top-looking” leadless package (C30737MA) or in a BGA type “top-looking” package (C30737GA). Both packages are ideally suited for high volume, cost-effective applications where a high gain APD is required. The leadless SMD and BGA packaged parts are RoHS-compliant and suitable for reflow soldering.
Options for these APDs include breakdown voltage selection (binning), number of elements (8 to 64) and individual APD element sizes. Note that APD arrays with more than 32 elements are controlled by the Dual-Use list.
Looking specifically for SMDs to support your high-volume manufacturing?
The C30737MH series of LLC SMD packaged APDs has the smallest footprint of any of our standard SMD packages, at only 2mm by 1.75mm in size. This makes it a very attractive device when space is a constraint, all the while benefiting from compatibility with automated assembly tools for high efficiency assembly at minimal cost. It can also be tiled to make either linear or two dimensional arrays.

Excelitas’ C30737CH-300-7 APD comes in a unique LLC SMD package, allowing for automated pick-and-place "side-looker" or "top-looker" assembly on pcbs, making for a very flexible part assembly wise. This feature greatly facilitates optical design for laser meter or laser range-finding application. Excelitas’ Model C30737LH Series is an LCC SMD package that can be ordered with built-in optical bandpass filters at different wavelengths. The C30737MH Series, C30737CH Series and C30737LH Series can be ordered in "Tape and Reel" packaging, ready for convenient, automated, SMD pick-and-place.
The C30724 is a low gain APD and can be operated at fixed voltage without the need of a temperature compensation. The C30724EH comes in a traditional, hermetically-sealed TO-18 can.
The C30737PH Series comes in cost-effective, plastic through-hole T1 ¾ (TO-like, “PH”) packages. These versions are available in two active area sizes: 0.23 and 0.5 mm diameter.
All of the listed varieties are ideally suited for high-volume, low-cost applications.
Customization of these APDs are offered to meet your design challenges. Operation voltage selection and binning or specific wavelength filtering options are among the many application-specific solutions available from Excelitas Technologies.
