The sensor features internal temperature compensation, fast 30 millisecond response time and excellent infrared (IR) rejection. The ALS operates from a 1.8 V to 3.0 V supply with an ultra-low operating current of less than 4 uA, and its voltage output can be connected directly to an ADC without buffering.
Available in a small 2.1mm x 2.1mm package, the ISL76671 is an ideal solution for light detection behind darkened glass and plastic bezels in a wide range of light-based control applications. The ultra-low light sensitivity (0.01 lux) enables excellent nighttime performance. (As a reference, the illumination from the full moon is typically from 0.25 to 1 lux, depending on location.)
The ISL76671 is assembled in a tiny 2.1mm x 2.1mm OFDN package with prices starting at $0.85 in 1,000-piece units.
