Abstract:

Two silicon photodiode-amplifier modules have been developed and brought to the stage where moderate production rates have been demonstrated. The first of these in SAPDM-1 built to Specification MMT-769776-2. This unit uses a silicon avalanche photodiode, together with a hybrid preamplifier, in a TO-8 size package and is optimized to detect pulses of 1.06 micrometer radiation in a rangefinder application. The second module is SAPDM-2 built to specification MMT-769776-3. This unit uses a silicon avalanche photodiode together with a hybrid preamplifier on a special 1 diameter package for use in fibre optic applications at 820nm. This unit also contains temperature compensation circuitry which keeps the characteristics of the unit constant as the temperature changes.
