Vishay TSAL6102 alternative

Hello All,

I am looking for an alternative to Vishay TSAL6102 . The two important parameters for me are (a) Irradiance (220 mW/sr) and (b) wavelength (940 nm). Response time (15 nS) and degree of 1/2 emission (+-10 degrees) are not that important but the closer a match is possible, the better.

I found some matches but none of them seem to be available as sample or in quantity less than few thousands. (I am a DIYer and need only 10 or so).

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I use these for IR remotes... they work great. See if the specs are close to what you need:

They seem rated lower than your specs, but they can handle pulse currents up to 1.5 amperes and emit a LOT of IR in low duty cycle pulsed mode (i.e. like an IR remote does).
