    CY8CKIT-048 and Photodiode Project

    user_252

      I'm starting a new project which I think the Analog Coprocessor Kit would be a good kit to use for the initial testing. I'm looking at replacing the detector (datasheet attached) with some standard photodiodes and a PSoC.

         

       

         

      I have 2 photodiodes, http://www.excelitas.com/downloads/DTS_vtb1112b13b.pdf and https://media.digikey.com/pdf/Data%20Sheets/Excelitas%20PDFs/VTP9812FH.pdf

         

      I plan on connecting the photodiode to a TIA and following that with an ADC. I haven't worked with one of these sensitive circuits since the dawn of ages so I was hoping to get some helpful kick starting tips to proceed.

         

      Thanks,
