Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are semiconductor-based photodetectors with performances similar to the traditional Photomultiplier Tubes (PMT). An increasing number of experiments dedicated to particle detection in colliders, accelerators, astrophysics, neutrino and rare-event physics, involving scintillators are using silicon Photo multipliers as photodetectors. They are gradually substituting PMTs in many applications, especially where low voltages are required and high magnetic field is present. Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. is one of leading producers of photodetectors and is continously producing SiPMs of improved performances. In the last year Hamamatsu has introduced the 14160 series of SiPMs with improved performances. In the present work a characterization of these devices will be presented in terms of breakdown voltages, gain, noise and pulse shape. Particular attention will be devoted to the analysis of parameters as function of temperature. Finally a comparison with Hamamatsu SiPMs of the previous series and with devices produced by other companies will be presented.
