Vishay Semiconductors VCNL4020 Fully Integrated Proximity & Ambient Light Sensor

Vishay Semiconductors VCNL4020 Fully Integrated Proximity & Ambient Light Sensor

Vishay Semiconductors VCNL4020 Fully Integrated Proximity & Ambient Light Sensor combines an IR emitter, a photo-pin-diode for proximity, an ambient light detector, a signal processing IC, and a 16-bit ADC in one small 4.9 x 2.4 x 0.83mm rectangular leadless (LLP) package. The 3-in-1 sensor features an interrupt function, supports I²C bus communication interface, and greatly simplifies window and sensor placement in a wide variety of consumer and industrial applications. It also features the industry's lowest height of 0.8mm, and a 16 bit resolution.

For mobile devices such as smart phones, touch phones, PDAs, GPS units, and digital cameras, the new VCNL4020 saves power as a proximity sensor by turning off the display backlight when close to the user, while using its integrated ambient light function for display/keypad adaptive brightness control. Containing all the circuitry needed for these applications in one device, the VCNL4020 eliminates the need for additional light barriers and optical alignment of the IR emitter and photo diode.
