Silicon Technology introduces its new line of Broadcom IFPD Optical Sensors

(SiPM, ToF, Spectrometer and Pyroelectric)



We are now carrying optical sensors offered by Broadcom's IFPD department. Broadcom is a fabless company developing and selling semiconductor products and software for wireless, broadband communications infrastructure. Among Broadcom's numerous product lines which turn over USD 50 billion annually we have started handling the company's Optical Sensors.

Our selected Optical Sensors are divided into 4 major categories which are outlined hereafter, namely Silicon Photomultiplier, Time-of-Flight 3D Sensors, Spectrometers and Pyroelectric Detectors.
