APD & SPAD Sensors for Consumer, Automotive and Medical

X-FAB offers APD (Avalanche Photodiode) and SPAD (Single Photon Avalanche Diode) for use in consumer, automotive and medical application. APD and SPAD are part of X-FAB’s highly modular, automotive qualified process XH018 and completely integrated in the design kit. Models for optical and electrical simulation, along with a specific application note, help to easy integrate these devices into circuitries:

Some of the key feature are:

  • High Photon Detection Probability (PDP) over wide wavelength range
  • Leading low dark count rate (DCR) < 100Hz/µm2
  • High bandwidth due to dead time lower than 15ns
  • CLow breakthrough voltage < 20V

The X-FAB APD and SPAD can be utilized in a broad spectrum of different applications - including proximity sensing, LiDAR, time of flight (ToF), medical imaging (CT and PET) and scientific research.
