Discovery Semiconductors Showcases its Highly Linear Photodiode Instrument at CLEO/QELS 2010

Ewing, NJ - May 18, 2010

Highly Linear Photodiodes (HLPD)

Discovery Semiconductors Inc., a leading supplier of optical receivers, test instruments and sub-systems, will showcase its new Highly Linear Photodiode (HLPD®) Lab Buddy instrument at this week’s CLEO/QELS conference in San Jose, CA, booth # 2111.

The HLPD® instrument consolidates several years of Discovery’s pioneering work in highly linear photodiode technology. It combines linear photodiode performance at > 1.5V RF output and 22 GHz of bandwidth with temperature stabilization. Mr. Abhay Joshi, President & CEO of Discovery Semiconductors explained, "As we have progressed towards unprecedented levels of power handling and linearity in photodiodes, stabilizing the device temperature has become essential for reliable performance and even higher linearity."

Mr. Dan Mohr, Discovery’s Senior Engineer added, "This instrument was developed to deploy Discovery’s HLPD® technology in a flexible laboratory instrument for upcoming applications such as precision photonic oscillators, as well as a characterization standard for a myriad of optoelectronic components." The new Lab Buddy incorporates front panel controls as well as a remote computer interface to allow seamless integration into various automated test setups.

Discovery Semiconductors is an industry leader in manufacturing ultrafast, high optical power handling InGaAs photodiodes, radio frequency over fiber optical receivers, balanced optical receivers and several other custom products for applications ranging from analog RF links to ultrafast digital communications. Discovery’s subsystems include Kitty Hawk, an ultra-fast Optical Coherent System.
