Parallel Output Arrays

Standard packaging and element configurations result in low cost and quick delivery for Judson's high-quality photodiode arrays. The 16 and 32 element InGaAs arrays respond to infrared radiation from 700nm to 1.8µm. The photodiode arrays come mounted in a dual inline 40 pin package.

Judson's NIR arrays have a parallel output format with common substrate and one pinout for each element. This format allows for independent readings from each channel.

A separate transimpedance op-amp circuit is recommended for each channel.



  • Clinical Analyzers
  • Near-IR Spectroscopy
  • Fibert Optics
  • Currency Validation



These arrays are mounted in the Judson "40P" package, a 40 pin, dual-in-line package with glass window. Pins 1 and 21 are connected to the common substrate. Elements of the 16-element array are connected to pins 23-38. The 32-element array is mounted with odd-numbered elements connected to pins 3-18 and even-numbered elements connected to pins 23-38. The gap between elements is 0.01mm.
