The Key Specifications:

Market Applications:

  • Photo detection in light curtains, light barriers, metering systems, switches, and rain and sun sensors

The Perspective:

With sensitive areas of 0.85 mm2, the Vishay Semiconductors VEMD6010X01 and VEMD6110X01 combine a high reverse light current of 9.5 μA — three times that of previously released devices — with a very low dark current of 1 nA for automotive and industrial applications. For the detection of visible and near infrared radiation, the VEMD6010X01 is a clear epoxy device with a wide sensitivity range of 450 nm to 1100 nm. For 750 nm to 1050 nm infrared applications, the VEMD6110X01 is a black epoxy device with a daylight blocking filter matched with 830 nm to 950 nm IR emitters.
