14 Gb/s GaAs Photodiode

PD10Y1 is a ultra small 14 Gb/s GaAs photodiode chip featuring a large optical aperture allowing easy coupling to multi-mode fibers. The top illuminated p-i-n photodiode structure is optimized for short reach 850 nm VCSEL based high-speed parallel optical interconnects up to 14 Gb/s and offers an excellent responsivity and high speed of response in the wavelength region from 830 to 860 nm.

The G-S-G contact pad layout allows easy and direct bonding to any TIA layout. In addition, the ultra small chip footprint saves valuable space in small packages such as TO-46.


  • Large optical aperture: 60 µm
  • High responsivity: 0.6 A/W @ 850 nm
  • Low capacitance: 210 fF
  • Low dark current: 0.1 nA
  • G-S-G pad configuration
  • Cost effective, ultra small chip size
