Miniature Surface Mount Ambient Light Photo Sensor

Currently Viewing:

The APDS-9009 is a low cost analog-output ambient light photo sensor in an 8-pin ODFN lead-free surface mount package. It has an ultra slim form factor with a height of only 0.34 mm. It consist of a photo sensor whose spectral response is close to the CIE standard photopic observer.


  • Miniature package size: L2.00 x W2.00 x H0.34 mm
  • Spectral responsivity close to that of human eye
  • Low sensitivity variation across various light sources
  • Output linearity across wide illumination range
  • Operating temperature: -40°C to 85°C
  • Vcc supply: 1.8 to 5.5V


  • Detection of ambient light to control display backlighting in wearable, mobile, computing and consumer devices
  • Automatic residential and commercial lighting management
  • Electronic signs and signals
