DISCOVERY Semiconductors has introduced the new model R205M balanced optical receiver, useful for LIDAR and eye safe free space applications.
Available from Lastek , this joins the single input model R202 as specialty photoreceivers for the 1.2 to 2.2μm light spectrum.
Operating at 150MHz (model R205M) or 3GHz (model R202) with a peak gain of 20dB, both receivers are offered in a compact hermetic package.
The balanced receiver option consists of matched InGaAs/InP photodiodes and a low noise amplifier. Use the balanced receiver in coherent-lightwave link designs to eliminate laser relative intensity noise (RIN).
Delivery is within 4-6 weeks after receipt of order with the customer's choice of optical input connector and a type K or dual GPPO/SMMP coaxial RF output.
