HOT PRODUCTS

Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs)

First Sensor offers avalanche photodiodes (APDs), or diodes with an internal gain mechanism. These diodes are available with different housings, and components optimized for the blue, red, and infrared spectral range between 905 and 1064 nm. 

Embedded Area View System Brochure

The Embedded Area View is the latest technology of driver assistance systems based on long-term experience in automotive CMOS cameras. It includes an Embedded Control Unit (ECU) that meets embedded and automotive requirements, and can facilitate up to six 2.0 MPix cameras to support difficult automotive environments, such as in large vehicles and vehicles with limited driver vision.

Digital Differential Pressure Sensors: HTD Series Digital Differential Pressure Sensors: HTD Series

First Sensor offers the HTD series of piezoresistive differential pressure sensors for use in low pressure ranges and demanding space constrictions. These high-performance, high-accuracy sensors allow for flexible direct manifold assemblies. A digital SPI interface and analog voltage output provides the maximum flexibility for any type of application.

Tailored Solutions For Optimal Sensors Tailored Solutions For Optimal Sensors

First Sensor provides a continuous tailored process for assisting customers in finding the optimum sensor solutions for standard sensors, modifications thereof, or a custom development. This process begins with the analyzation of the customers’ specific task, and then moves to the creation of a plan, and the development and management of the entire sensor solution.

Quadrant PIN Diodes Quadrant PIN Diodes

Quadrant PIN photodiodes are discrete components that usually feature four optically active areas separated by a small gap. First Sensor has combined the highest sensitivity, high speed, low noise, and low crosstalk into this wide range of quadrant detectors. These sensors are optimized for ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light, as well as ionizing radiation, and are used in many applications for detecting laser beam positions, collimators, and other applications to facilitate adjustment.

Solid-State Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) For Near-Ultraviolet or Red, Green & Blue Light Detection Solid-State Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) For Near-Ultraviolet or Red, Green & Blue Light Detection

First Sensor offers a new series of innovative solid-state silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) that are designed to detect ultra-low light levels down to single photons. These detectors are optimized for near-ultraviolet (Series SiPM-NUV) or red, green, and blue (Series SiPM-RGB) light detection with peak sensitivities at 420 nm or 550 nm. Key features include a low operating voltage, high gain and low noise, and immunity to magnet fields.

Detect Ionizing Radiation: X Photodiode Series Detect Ionizing Radiation: X Photodiode Series

First Sensor’s X series of photodiodes is utilized to detect alpha, beta, gamma, and X-ray radiation either directly through the absorption in the crystal lattice or indirectly through the measurement of the luminescence radiation of a scintillation crystal. The series features optimized silicon PIN photodiodes that form wide, fully depleted space-charge regions to guarantee maximum radiation absorption, even at low reverse voltages.
