Photo Detector with Integrated Transimpedance Amplifiers

Analog Devices optoelectronic amplifiers include a range of germanium photodiodes that, through a proprietary process, have been monolithically integrated with silicon transimpedance amplifiers and limiting amplifiers. This process eliminates the need for bond wires connecting the photodiode to the transimpedance amplifier, which leads to improved performance and greater manufacturing reliability. Our portfolio of products also supports the growing need for optical and electrical interface miniaturization.
