SFH250 - 100MBd Analog Receiver Diode

Currently Viewing:

The SFH250 is a low-cost 650nm receiver diode for simple optical data transmission with polymer optical fiber. It incorporates an analog photodiode and can be used for speeds up to 100MBd.

The transparent plastic package has an aperture where the the 2.2mm fiber end can be inserted and fixed with glue. This easy coupling method is extremely cost-effective.
