Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) and SiPM matrices optimized for the detection of blue light have been developed at FBK-irst. The first devices produced are composed of 625 microcells with 40 mu m x 40 mu m size, in a 1 mm x 1 mm active area. The devices have a breakdown voltage around 30 V, and a gain about 10(6). The DASIPM Collaboration is evaluating their performance and possible applications in high-energy physics, space physics and medical imaging. Dedicated front-end electronics are also being developed.
