AMIC – product release: Advanced light and proximity sensor controller family now released


The ASR-8xxxx are a family of intelligent light sensor controllers which can be configured for ambient light measuring both the lux value as well the spectrum of light, the Solar UV index measuring, Infra Red measuring and has the ability for proximity detection by means of light deflection. The built-in I2C serial interface allows easy migration inside end customer application.

ASR-8601: Ambient light with wide human-eye response and full IR rejection mode sensor.

ASR-8600: Ambient light, Solar UV index, IR and proximity sensor.

ASR-8800: Ambient light, Solar UV index, IR and proximity sensor with embedded VCSEL laser diode.
