photodetectors

APIC analog receivers are fabricated using InP/InGaAs material platform and designed for highest responsivity, bandwidth, input optical power and maximum output current linearity. To achieve this, we use a proprietary epitaxial design and receiver configuration that allows independent optimization of the above parameters. The devices are optimized to work in RF over fiber links that require high dynamic range, low noise figure and high RF gain. The packaged components are soldered and laser welded, ensuring maximum physical reliability and performance stability with ambient temperature variation. We currently offer different configurations of receivers in the frequency range from DC to 40 GHz with a K-connector RF output. Some models include an internal 50 Ohm impedance which obviates the need for a bias T. APIC also offers a surface-mount 20-GHz PD with a 50 Ohm internal impedance.
