In order to optimize a detector for enhanced performance levels within their designated applications, it is important to understand the heatsinking of the package. A detector’s thermal resistance is minimized by the proper heat sink selection and mounting, and by using a thermal interface material. Download this white paper for more on how the correct thermal and electronic detector design will prevent damage and optimize its performance.
