Mouser announces global distribution agreement with Advanced Photonix

Global semiconductor and electronic component distributor Mouser Electronics Inc has announced a new global distribution agreement with Advanced Photonix of Camarillo, CA, USA (a division of OSI Optoelectronics), which provides photonics, optoelectronics and electronic systems for aerospace & defence, medical and industrial OEMs.

With more than 30 years of experience in optoelectronics and in-house semiconductor fabrication services, Advanced Photonix designs, develops and fabricates photodetectors, emitters and photoresistors. Mouser is hence now stocking the company’s silicon, indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) P-I-N, APD photodiodes and hybrids, and cadmium sulphide (CdS) light-dependent resistor (LDR) photocells.

The firm’s UV-enhanced silicon photodiode offers a high-performance solution for applications requiring highly sensitive devices in the ultraviolet region. The device features low noise, high shunt resistance, and increased response with an active area diameter of 2.54mm. 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, suitable for accurate nulling, centering or measuring small positional changes. The blue-enhanced P-I-N photodiodes offer high responsivity, large active area and low noise, and are suitable for high-speed response applications in the blue region of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Advanced Photonix CdS photocells have sensitivity in the 400-700nm visible light region. 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.
