OSI Fibercomm Inc. (Nasdaq:OSIS), the wholly owned fiber optic subsidiary of OSI Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:OSIS), announced the expansion of its optical device product offerings with its new 10 Gbps Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) photodetector to meet the ongoing requirements for cost, speed and reliability for fiber optic applications.

OSI Fibercomm's FCI-InGaAs-25C is an InGaAs/InP, high-speed photodiode chip in a planar structure, exhibiting low dark current in the order of 100 pA at operating reverse bias of 5V. It has a wire-bondable anode pad on the front side and an epoxy/eutectic bondable cathode metallization on the back side. The photodiode can be used for high speed optical receivers in the wavelength range of 1310nm to 1620nm for 10Gbps data rates and picosecond optical time measuring instruments.

The new photodetector, to be officially introduced at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) from Sept. 30 - Oct. 4, 2001, is currently available in sample quantities.
