Position Sensitive Diode: Introduction

  • A position sensitive diode is capable of measuring position of a light spot in one or two-dimensions on a sensor surface
  • The position sensitive diode is based on silicon PIN diode technology, which is required to measure the position of the integral focus of an incoming light signal
  • The position sensitive diode converts light spot into a continuous electrical signal with respect to the position of spot
  • The position sensitive diode possess photodiode surface resistance to provide continuous position data, high position resolution, and high-speed response
  • One-dimensional position sensitive diodes can have long, narrow photosensitive area for detecting positions in a longitudinal direction, which is ideal to use in displacement meters and distance measurement applications, such as optical switches, etc.
  • The two-dimensional position sensitive diode exhibits low position detection errors and excellent resolution. It offers high-speed response and low dark current with improved features to allow close position detection.

Rise in Demand for Position Sensitive Diode Globally

  • The position sensitive diode can be utilized to monitor beam alignment and to stabilize the position of a laser beam
  • Position sensitive diodes are primarily required for several industrial applications, including transportation systems, HVAC systems, industrial equipment, smart buildings, mobile hydraulics, construction equipment, and heavy-duty machinery
  • They are also required in optical engineering, aerospace and military fields due to increasing demand in long working distance, low energy consumption over weak signal sensing systems
  • Technological advancements in consumer electronics and their rising demand; and increase in adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IOT), virtual reality (VR), emerging 5G are fuelling advancements in electronic technology, which in turn fuels the demand for position sensitive diode in residential, commercial as well as industrial applications

 Asia Pacific to Lead Global Position Sensitive Diode Market

  • Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the global position sensitive diode market owing to a rise in demand for cost-effective and highly efficient position sensitive diodes from electronics, automotive, manufacturing, medical and healthcare and packaging industries
  • Increase in population, rise in R&D investments and expansion of manufacturing and electronics sectors in Asia Pacific are anticipated to fuel the global position sensitive diode market
  • The position sensitive diode market in Europe and North America is estimated to expand considerably due to a rise in the demand for automation in systems in these regions. Increasing demand for automation across different industry verticals is further fueling the market in Europe.
