Reliable non-hermetic photodiodes are expected to reduce the cost of optoelectronics used in fiber to the home and cable TV system. However, all reports to date indicate non-hermetic InGaAs/InP photodiodes do not have sufficient reliability for use in the systems. In this paper, we report the first data that conclusively shows, properly designed and manufactured non- hermetic InGaAs/InP photodiodes can be made with reliability sufficient to use in telecommunication systems. We have produced non-hermetic photodiodes whose hazard rate at 15 years of field use at 45 degrees Celsius and 50% RH is less than 100 FITs, the requirement for telecommunication systems.
