Optical sensors


Optical SensorsIn July 2012, Maxim Integrated Products announced four digital optical sensors that advance analogue integration with sensor fusion.

Features and USP: The MAX44004/05/06/08 measure red, green and blue (RGB) light levels, ambient visible light, proximity to the sensor, ambient infrared (IR) levels and temperature. As many as seven sensors are integrated into one compact optical package. The sensors provide robust and repeatable measurements and the MAX44005, MAX44006 and MAX44008 all consume a low 20 µA each. The high integration reduces system costs, eliminates several external components and greatly simplifies design. These optical sensors can be used in a wide variety of applications such as smartphones, tablets, portable consumer devices, displays, digital light management, security systems and medical devices.
