Your Partner for Hard-to-find Optoelectronics Components
Optoelectronics is a technical discipline that deals with the interaction between light and electrons. In optoelectronics, elements convert electric current into light or vice versa.
Optoelectronic devices convert electrical and optical signals back and forth. Due to the prevalence of CMOS devices, both analog and digital signals are most easily processed and stored in electronic form. However, optical signals provide distinct advantages for high-speed and long-distance transmission.
The two key technologies for converting electrical signals to optical are light-emitting diodes (发光二极管) 和激光. 发光二极管 use current flowing through a PN junction to emit photons. This junction can be engineered to produce any desired spectrum of light. Lasers also convert electricity into visible light, but can produce a coherent, more spectrally pure, and more powerful light source. Lasers require more electrical power than 发光二极管. A laser diode is a device that has qualities of both a laser and an LED. Converting optical signals into electrical signals is accomplished via a photodiode or photovoltaic cell.
VRG Components can source any electronic parts that are hard to find – in short supply (allocations), end-of-life, or have long lead times – especially optoelectronics.
