• Integrated modules: infrared emitter (IRED),
ambient light sensor (ALS-PD), proximity sensor
(PD), and signal conditioning IC
• Interrupt function
• Supply voltage range VDD: 2.5 V to 3.6 V
• Supply voltage range IR anode: 2.5 V to 5 V
• Communication via I2C interface
• I2C Bus H-level range: 1.7 V to 5 V
• Floor life: 168 h, MSL 3, acc. J-STD-020
• Low stand by current consumption: 1.5 μA


• Proximity sensor for mobile devices (e.g. smart phones,
touch phones, PDA, GPS) for touch screen locking, power
saving, etc.
• Integrated ambient light function for display/keypad
contrast control and dimming of mobile devices
• Proximity/optical switch for consumer, computing and
industrial devices and displays
• Dimming control for consumer, computing and industrial displays

Proximity Function:

• Built-in infrared emitter and photo-pin-diode for proximity
• 16 bit effective resolution for proximity detection range
ensures excellent cross talk immunity
• Programmable LED drive current from 10 mA to 200 mA in
10 mA steps
• Excellent ambient light suppression by modulating the
infrared signal
• Proximity distance up to 200 mm

Ambient Light Function:

• Built-in ambient light photo-pin-diode with close-tohuman-eye sensitivity
• 16 bit dynamic range from 0.25 lx to 16 klx
• 100 Hz and 120 Hz flicker noise rejection


Compliant to RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU in accordance to WEEE 2002/96/EC. Please see the document Vishay material category policy.
