Design Note #117
Used for laser interferometry, balanced detector amplifiers must operate at high speed and low noise with precise channel to channel balance to be effective. Detector bias, device coupling, controlled impedance and RF design techniques are needed to achieve optimum performance. Orchid’s unique analog design expertise achieves remarkable performance results. And – production costs are lower than purchased off the shelf!
The optical to electronic interface requires precise electro-mechanical design. Physical coupling and electrical distances effect overall performance. Orchid’s ability to custom design the optical mounting hardware is critical to achieving bandwidth performance.
The development of custom electronic products for our OEM clients is Orchid’s entire business. The design of high speed custom analog amplifiers with rapid design cycles, demanding technical requirements, and unforgiving schedules sets us apart. Call Orchid Technologies today!
