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.
