Light Sensors


Excellent Light Sensing

  • High functionality integration in a single chip offering low cost and easy system migration.
  • Wide light spectrum range coverage.
  • Very low power consumption.
  • I2C interface with interrupt pin for easy control.
  • Exceptional dynamic range of 16-bits and up to 400K lux detection.
  • Crosstalk cancellation done by a single command set.
  • Integrated 8-bit ADC for Solar UV Index.
Proximity Sensor Advantage
  • Different aperture pitch supported ( 2.4mm , 1.4mm , 1.0mm ).
  • Strong/Smart capability of crosstalk cancellation.
  • Separate 8-bits ADC for Proximity count sensing, Infra-red.
  • VSEL (850nm) for ultra low crosstalk noise.
  • No extra isolator needed (reducing mechanical overhead and costs).
  • Low Power consumption.
  • No blind zone issue.

1. Ambient light detection: Detect light intensity (lux) Detect light spectrum, including human visible light and near Infrared


2. Proximity Presence:

Detect object presence by means of the Infra-Red reflection light intensity.
