Marktech Optoelectronics has teamed up with Digi-Key Electronics to offer custom-made photodetectors specifically designed and optimised to meet customer specifications. The custom detectors can be made from Marktech silicon photovoltaic or photoconductive photodiodes, avalanche photodiodes, phototransistors, or InGaAs PIN photodiodes.

Custom device packaging is also available, either to customer specifications or recommended by Marktech to best suit the customer’s application.

“Marktech's specialty has been in the design, testing, and manufacturing of custom detectors, emitters and assemblies,” said Mark Campito, CEO at Marktech Optoelectronics. “Partnering up with Digi-Key allows us to connect with a broad range of designers that normally wouldn't be aware that these services are available to them.”

By filling in the form located at digikey.com or on the Marktech Optoelectronics custom detector webpage, circuit designers will be able to obtain a device that is optimised to their application and mechanical design.

“As applications for photodetectors get more varied and complex, there is a need for our customers to design in components with tight specifications,” said David Stein, VP, Global Semiconductors at Digi-Key. “Having an option to obtain Marktech’s custom detectors through Digi-Key will make it easier for the design engineer and speed up the product development cycle.”
