VISHAY VCNL4035X01 FULLY INTEGRATED PROXIMITY AND AMBIENT LIGHT SENSOR

Vishay introduces a new fully integrated Automotive Grade proximity and ambient light sensor for gesture recognition

Vishay introduces a new fully integrated Automotive Grade proximity and ambient light sensor for gesture recognition. Featuring Filtron™ technology, the Vishay Semiconductors VCNL4035X01 combines photo-detectors for proximity and ambient light, a signal conditioning IC, a 16-bit ADC, and a driver for up to three external IREDs in one compact 4 x 2.36 x 0.75 mm surface-mount package. The AEC-Q101 qualified sensor features an interrupt function and supports the I2C bus communication interface for portable electronics and smart home, industrial, and automotive applications.
