Marketch Optoelectronics packages SWIR emitters in CSP

Short wave infra red (SWIR) emitters have been integrated into a single chip scale package (CSP). It is claimed to be the first surface mount version available.

The SWIR LEDs or emitters are available in wavelengths ranging from 1040 to 1650nm.

The SWIRs have up to two times the output power of conventional SWIR LED chips, says Marktech but in a compact CSP which enables high stacking density on a PCB and a small footprint of 1.6 x 1.6mm. The SWIR component reliability is based on a long mean time between failures (MTBF) for a long lifetime. The package is also claimed to have lower thermal resistance compared to plastic leaded chip frame (PLCC) SMD SWIR LEDs.

The compact emitter with high power output will enable engineers to shrink and enhance optoelectronic SWIR design with new products suitable for use in industrial applications.

Marktech Optoelectronics manufactures ultra violet (UV), visible, near-infrared (for barcode readers, fibre optics, optical switches and sensors), and SWIR emitters and detectors. The company also engineers and manufactures materials such as Si Photodetector wafers, chips, and InP epiwafers.

Marktech’s expert optoelectronic application engineering team has 35+ years of experience guiding customers in the definition, development, and production of the optimal solutions to the design project requirements using standard or customer-specific optoelectronic devices. Marktech can design custom devices, photodiodes, point sources, packaged optoelectronics, multi-chip emitter-detector packages, and assemblies, working with manufacturers of any size to optimise the performance and total cost of customers’ applications.

Marktech’s support capabilities include onsite labs with optoelectronic test equipment and test and validation capabilities for all optical and electrical parameters. In addition to Marktech’s in-house photodetector line, the company is a Cree Solutions Provider for high-brightness LED products and chip materials.
