SiC provides the unique property of extreme radiation hardness, near-perfect visible blindness, low dark current,high speed and low noise. These features make SiC the best available material for visible blind semiconductor UV detectors.
W SiC diodes are included in all common TO (Transistor Outline) packages from TO18/TO46 over TO5/TO39 and TO8 up to size TO3. The packages offer hermetic tightness and resistance to solvents and radiation. As a result, an application to a variety of components is possible.
