NIR Quadrant PIN

The QP154 detector

First Sensor AG (Berlin, Germany), part of TE, has developed a large area NIR quadrant PIN which could play a pivotal role in defense technologies. The QP154 detector is a quadrant PIN photodiode with a large 14 mm active area for semi-active controllers in a 100% hermetically sealed and electrically isolated transistor outline TO package. The Si detector is optimized for the NIR and specifically 1 μm wavelengths, commonly used in defense applications in the laser seeker/detector head on missiles. The circular face of the QP chip is equally divided into four quadrants, and acts as the “eye” in the detector head, ensuring that the missile can “see” the targeting laser and hit the target with a high degree of accuracy.
