Miniature Surface Mount Ambient Light Photo Sensor

Currently Viewing:

The APDS-9006 is a low cost analog-output ambient light photo sensor in miniature chipLED lead-free, reverse surface mount package. It consists of a photo sensor, whose spectral response is close to CIE standard photopic observer. Hence, it provides an excellent responsivity that is close to the response of human eyes.
