VTB1012BH - Si PD, TO-46, 1.6mm2, IR Filter

The VTB1012BH is a silicon photodiode in a hermetic TO-46 flat window package. It has a built-in IR rejection filter to limit the response into the visible portion of the spectrum and exhibits a very high shunt resistance and low dark current.

The VTB1012BH silicon photodiode is designed in a hermetic TO-46 flat window package having a 1.6 mm2 active area, as well as a built-in IR rejection filter to limit the response into the visible portion of the spectrum.

These photodiodes are primarily intended to be used in photovoltaic mode but may be used with a small reverse bias. They have also been designed to exhibit very high shunt resistance, a characteristic which leads to low offsets when used in high gain trans-impedance op-amp circuits.

Features & Benefits:

  • Visible spectral range
  • 1%-2% linearity over 7 to 9 decades
  • Very low dark current
  • Very high shunt resistance
  • RoHs compliant

Applications:

  • Interior and exterior light control and light switching
  • Automotive headlight dimmer
  • Display contrast control
  • Energy conservation
