Broadcom's Silicon photomultipliers are aiming at ultra-fast and single photon counting applications. We offer two different technologies:
• the NUV-HD technology for applications in the near-UV and visible range
• the NIR-UHD technology, in advanced development stage, with at high sensitivity at relevant LiDAR-wavelengths in the near-IR range.
Both technologies comprise high PDE with high dynamic range, excellent uniformity of breakdown-voltage and very short recovery times.
Broadcom broadens its portfolio of innovative optical sensors. Broadcom's new Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) have been especially designed to meet the challenging requirements in automotive and industrial LiDAR applications. The underlying NIR-UHD SiPM technology shows an unprecedented performance by combining a high PDE of 18% at 905 nm with a recharge time of 10 ns. High dynamic range is achieved with the smallest cell size, while a low dark countrate, low cross-talk and after-pulsing probability are making the NIR-UHD SiPM the perfect detector for high performing LiDAR applications.
A long experience in semiconductor production and packaging for automotive and industrial customers make Broadcom a perfect partner for your demanding LiDAR applications. Broadcom NIR-UHD SiPM performance:
- PDE at 905 nm: 18%
- Recharge time constant: < 10 ns
- Single photon time resolution: 500 ps
- Smallest cell size
- DCR: 600 kHz/mm2
- Direct cross-talk: < 20%
- Samples Available
