MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intersil Corporation (Nasdaq:ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today introduced the ISL29035, an innovative and highly compact ambient and infrared sensor.

The ISL29035 enables the automatic adjustment of display brightness based on the ambient light conditions to improve the user experience and extend battery life. The ISL29035 sensor offers market-leading angular response of a minimum of +/- 35% field of view at 50% light intensity. The wide dynamic range of 0.01 lux to 64,000 lux enhances users' visual experience while using minimal power. A lux range select feature allows users to program display brightness to suit various ambient light conditions, such as dark, normal and bright light.

The ambient light sensor's advanced self-calibrated photodiode arrays emulate human eye response, providing excellent infrared (IR) light rejection. An on-chip charge-balancing 16-bit ADC rejects 50Hz and 60Hz flicker caused by artificial light sources.

In addition, the ISL29035 integrates a light-to-digital converter with an I2C (SMBus Compatible) interface to eliminate the need for a current amplifier, and ADC for interfacing to a system processor.

Features and Specifications
  • Industry's smallest 6-lead digital light sensor at 1.5mm x 1.6mm x 0.75mm
  • Delivers industry's optimal angular performance at +/- 35 percent (min)
  • Supports the requirements of the Windows 8 and Android operating systems
  • Functions under all light sources, including sunlight

Pricing and Availability

The ISL29035 is available now in 6-lead optical co-packages, priced at $0.58 each in 1,000-piece units. Intersil also is providing an evaluation board, the ISL29035IROZ-EVAL, for a price of $49 each. For more information please visit: http://www.intersil.com/products/ISL29035
