Benefits of GaN, InGaN and AlGaN photodiode products from GenUV:
  • Stability of detector over time (stability data)
  • Low cost solution for high volume applications
  • UV PCB sub assemblies, compact and low cost
  • UV Probe assemblies for use in air and water
  • UV-Visible version for focusing on the Blue and Green spectral regions
GenUV has 16 bit resolution digital UV sensors (detectors) with variable gain amplification in 2.0mm x 2.3mm SMD COB packaging. These products are used in cellphones, wearable devices, IoT, watches, weather stations, bicycle navigation and gaming accessories. They have features to minimize power consumption.

To avoid damaging sensors during soldering and cleaning, consider using sockets.
