Digital Proximity Sensor

Currently Viewing:

APDS-9130 is a digital I2C compatible interface proximity sensor with IR LED in a single 8-pin package. The proximity sensor is fully calibrated to detection of objects to 100 mm thus eliminating the need for factory calibration of the end equipment or sub-assembly. The proximity detection feature operates well from bright sunlight to dark rooms.  The addition of the micro-optics lenses within the module, provide highly efficient transmission and reception of infrared energy which lowers overall power dissipation.  In addition, an internal state machine provides the ability to put the device into a low power mode providing very low average power consumption.
