Osram to Release Its First VCSEL Product

Osram is introducing its first Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) product, Bidos PLPVQ 940A, to its product portfolio, reinforcing its position as a high technology company.

Osram acquired US-based VCSEL specialist Vixar in May this year and set new standards with VCSEL, including facial recognition for mobile devices. Combining IR LED and laser, Osram’s Bidos, unlike laser diodes (edge emitters), is a surface emitter which emits its light perpendicular to the surface of the semiconductor chip and, in terms of its wavelength, is much less sensitive to temperature fluctuations.

The new Bidos PLPVQ 940A offers a wavelength of 940 nm and an output of 300mW with a maximum efficiency of 27 percent. Two bond wires supply the laser diode uniformly and rapidly with energy. The size of the VCSEL package is 1.90 mm x 2.20 mm x 0.85 mm. The tiny sized package provides an illumination angle of 65° x 78°.

“Compared with other infrared technologies, VCSEL offer better beam quality, excellent focusing and a very small footprint”, said Bianka Schnabel, Marketing Manager for the Emitter Laser Sensor segment at Osram Opto Semiconductors. “Customers can now choose the best solution for their specific application from our extended infrared portfolio – whether it’s IRED, laser or VCSEL.”
