High-performance digital proximity ambient light RGB and gesture sensor

16-01-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Mouser now stocks the Avago Technologies APDS-9960 digital proximity ambient
light RGB and gesture sensor. The device features advanced gesture
detection, proximity detection, digital ambient light sense (ALS) and colour
sense (RGBC) capabilities.

Its slim modular package measures 3.94mm x 2.36mm x 1.35mm. The device
incorporates an IR LED and factory-calibrated LED driver for drop-in
compatibility with existing footprints. Gesture detection utilizes four
directional photodiodes to sense reflected IR energy (sourced by the
integrated LED) to convert physical motion information (i.e. velocity,
direction and distance) to digital format for applications such as gesture
detection, colour sense, ambient light sensing, cell phone touch screen
disable and replacement of mechanical switches.
