The SFH250 is a low-cost 650nm receiver for optical data transmission with polymer optical fiber. This Sipin-photodiode works fine with the transmitter SFH757. According to the intensity of the incident light the SFH250 generates an analog photocurrent. In typical applications the SFH250 is operated in reverse-biasing and is installed in series with a resistor, where the voltage tapping is taken. By increasing the reverse voltage the switching times decrease and the SFH250 can be used for transmission speeds up to 100MBd. Components of the SFH series are optimized for easy coupling. No fiber stripping is required, only the cut fiber has to be inserted into the selected SFH component.
