The DSC730 and DSC740 are "push-pull" InGaAs photodiodes with each photodiode capable of handling high optical power in excess of 10 dBm. High Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR) and low Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL) make these devices ideal for both digital and analog applications. The broad wavelength response of these photodiodes allows for multiple wavelength usage.
