Everlight Electronics Presents Ambient Light/Proximity Sensor Package for Mobile and Smart Phones
Everlight Electronics Co Ltd announces its latest innovation APM-16D25-11-DF8 which combines an ambient light and proximity sensor with an integrated IR transmitter in a compact DFN package. To optimize the sensitivity, the package includes a lens which was designed based on a highly precise optical simulation with 1 million light rays to produce an accurate model.Opti
Designed to reduce the power consumption of handheld devices like smart phones, mobile phones and PDAs, the APM-16D25-11-DF8's proximity sensor has a fast sensing time with a short ON time for the IR LED to keep the power consumption low without sacrificing on sensitivity.
The APM-16D25-11-DF8's ambient light sensor incorporates a special optical filtering for closest mimic with human eye spectral response. Everlight offers eight different available settings - four different integration times and two gain settings - to achieve the best matching resolution and
illumination ranges under different application conditions.
Key Features include:
Operating voltage 2.5 to 3.6V
I2C interface with 1.8V compatibility
Low current consumption of 90uA (typ. @3.3V, IR off)
8 bit ADC for proximity sensor
Proximity sensor refresh time: 10ms to 270ms
16 bit ADC for ambient light sensor
ALS integration time: 100ms, 200ms, 400ms and 800ms
ALS resolution: 0.0275lux/count
Interrupt function for ALS and PS
