Ambient light sensor copes with diverse lighting conditions

Avago Technologies is introducing a new ambient light sensor with a precise, logarithmic output response over a wide range of lighting conditions. The APDS-9007's logarithmic output is designed to cover a wide range of brightness (3lux to 70klux), making ambient light sensing suitable for mobile and other applications, such as outdoor lighting and solar panels, which may be operated under direct sunlight.

Designed to closely follow the human-eye spectral response curve, the APDS-9007 ambient-light photo sensor produces reliable sensor reading under diverse lighting conditions. The APDS-9007 also significantly reduces power consumption and saves battery life in portable and mobile devices by enabling the auto-adjustment of the LCD backlight intensity and keypad lighting.

Packaged in a miniature chipLED lead-free surface mount package, Avago's compact APDS-9007 also sustains temperature ranges of -40 to 85degC and Vcc supply from 2-3.6V.

The APDS-9007 is available now through Avago's direct sales and worldwide distributor partners.
