MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intersil Corporation (Nasdaq:ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today announced the ISL29125 digital light sensor, the industry's most accurate, lowest power and smallest Red, Green and Blue (RGB) sensor that optimizes the display resolution and color quality of mobile devices and TVs in all lighting environments. The ISL29125 RGB sensor communicates directly with a device's core processor to enable the automatic adjustment of display brightness based on changing light conditions, providing consumers with a more crisp and color consistent experience while extending battery life. The compact ISL29125 is also the industry's smallest 6-lead RGB sensor, which minimizes the real estate requirements of the optical sensor aperture, leading to improved industrial device designs.

When moving from one environment to another, lighting conditions invariably change and can affect the clarity and brightness of the device display, sometimes making the display difficult to read and use. With integrated, robust on-chip IR filtering technology and market-leading angular response of a minimum of +/- 35% field of view at 50% light intensity, the ISL29125 RGB sensor eliminates these display fluctuations, whether one is in an incandescent lit classroom, an LED lit store or outdoors in the sun. The ISL29125 works directly with the device's core processor to continuously adjust the lux range and ensure that the display maintains consistent perceived color and the ideal brightness level based on the current lighting environment.
