Ambient light sensor development kit simplifies design efforts

Aug. 9, 2006
August 9, 2006, Malvern, PA--In a move to reduce time to market for designers using its ambient light sensors, Vishay Intertechnology today announced a new light sensing development kit that allows development engineers to measure and display ambient illumination, tune the sensor, define their software program responses, and complete a hardware layout. The development kit supports Vishay's recently introduced ambient light sensor portfolio.

The development kit supports Vishay's recently introduced ambient light sensor portfolio.

Vishay's ambient light sensors help reduce power consumption in consumer electronics applications by controlling keypad backlights and adjusting the brightness of LCDs. In addition to improving display visibility and reducing power consumption, the sensors are an environmentally friendly alternative to cadmium-based photo resistors, the elimination of which has been mandated by Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) legislation.
