Signal Conditioning IC For Proximity Sensors

Currently Viewing:

APDS-9700 is a single chip solution that consists of a LED driver circuit, sunlight cancellation and built-in LED stuck high protection circuit integrated into a single chip.
APDS-9700 has artificial light immunity and is also operational under the sun. Design flexibility is optimized as APDS-9700 can be paired up with an integrated proximity sensor or discrete pair solution.
