Mouser Electronics signs global distribution deal with Advanced Photonix 

Photonics, optoelectronics and advanced electronic systems for leading aerospace and defence, medical, and industrial OEMs provided by Advanced Photonix are now available from Mouser Electronics, following a global distribution deal between the distributor and the division of OSI Optoelectronics.

Following the agreement, Mouser now stocks the company’s advanced silicon, InGaAs P-I-N, APD photodiodes and hybrids, and CdS LDR (light-dependent resistor) photocells.

Advanced Photonix designs, develops, and fabricates complex photo detectors, emitters and photoresistors. It has in-house semiconductor fabrication services to produce optoelectronics components and subsystems. Its expertise, derived from more than 30 years’ of experience in the field of optoelectronics, means Advanced Photonix has the expertise to develop efficient manufacturing processes that exceed the rigorous standards set by industrial, medical, and defence applications, said the company. 

The Advanced Photonix UV enhanced silicon photodiode is described as high performance and cost effective for applications requiring highly sensitive devices in the UV region. The device features low noise, high shunt resistance, and increased response with an active area diameter of 2.54 mm. 

Red enhanced P-I-N and quadrant silicon photodiodes are available in a choice of features and packages for a wide range of applications. They feature high accuracy with a large active area and low crosstalk, said the company, making them suitable for accurate nulling, centring, or measuring small positional changes. 

The Blue enhanced P-I-N photodiodes offer high responsivity, large active area, and low noise. These are suitable for high speed response applications in the blue region of the electromagnetic spectrum. 

Advanced Photonix’s CdS photocells are light-dependent resistors with sensitivity in the visible light region from 400 to 700 nm. The devices are available in a range of resistances, and decrease resistance as the light level increases with efficiency characteristics like those of the human eye. 

Mouser Electronics, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is an authorised semiconductor and electronic component distributor focused on new product introductions from its leading manufacturer partners. Its website is available in multiple languages and currencies and features more than 6,8 million products from over 1.200 manufacturer brands. 

Mouser offers 27 support locations worldwide and ships to over 650,000 customers in 223 countries/territories from its facilities in Texas, USA.
