1) Preamplifiers

The preamplifiers from VIGO Systems S.A. are divided into six types.

Series MIP

 Series MIP :

  • Transimpedance-Preamplifier-Modules with axial radiator for the flexible operation in the laboratory
  • for TE-cooled detectors
  • Bandwidth up to 250 MHz
Serie PIP

Series PIP :

  • Programmable “SMART” – Preamplifier for cooled detectors
  • with axial radiator for the flexible operation in the laboratory 
  • Bandwidth up to 200 MHz 
Series SIP

Series SIP :

  • Miniaturized Transimpedance preamplifier for integration
  • External heat sink required
  • For uncooled and TE-cooled detectors
    Bandwidth up to 250 MHz
Series µIP

Series µIP    

  • Transimpedace preamplifier with and without housings for uncooled detectors in TO39-housings
  • Bandwidth up to 20 MHz
Series AIP

Series AIP

  • Preamplifier with DC-output and integrated cooled controller
  • Suitable for bandwidth up to 250 MHz
  • for 2TE and 3TE cooled detectors 
Series QIP

Series FIP :

  • High Speed transimpedance preamplifier
  • for TE-cooled detectors (2TE – 4TE)
  • Bandwidth > 1 GHz

Important parameter are the way of coupling (AC or DC) and the bandwidth

  • DC – Coupling, in the preamplifier name the “x” will be replaced by “D”, e.g. VPDC or MIPDC; the bandwidth of the module starts at 0 Hz, thus also cw-radiation can be measured
  • AC – Couppling, in the preamplifier name the „x” will be replaced by „A”, e.g. VPAC or MIPAC; the bandwidth of the module starts at 10 Hz, 1 kHz or 10 kHz (depending from the uppper corner frequency) 
  • Bandwidth : There are different ranges of bandwidth offered. Please respect, that not all detector preamplifier combinations are possible, it means not all detector bandwidth combinations.

2) Controller for TE-cooling

Controller for TE-cooling

.he cooler controller  PTCC-01 is in 3 versions available

  • PTCC-01-OEM : Cooler controller with detector supply, without housing, with LED status indicator  and data connector
  • PTCC-01-BAS : Cooler controller with detector supply, with housing, with LED status indicator
  • PTCC-01-ADV : Cooler controller with detector supply, with housing, with key menu and LCD display

Die PTCC-Cooler controller is compatible to the preamplifier types : MIP, SIP, PIP und QIP

For the control of the programmable module with preamplifier PIP and cooler controller PTCC-01, please install the program Smart Manager on your PC. It is here as download available :
