Osram Opto Semiconductors (Sunnyvale, CA) has expanded its portfolio of proximity and ambient light sensors with a new, powerful version with low power consumption. The compact SFH 7776 digital sensor registers the ambient brightness – even behind dark smartphone covers – and prevents unintentional responses from the touchscreen during telephone calls. This makes it even easier for smartphone designers to control the backlighting and touch functions of displays. Features include:

  • An infrared LED (IRED) and 2 detectors to perform 2 different functions.
  • A working range of up to 16 cm.
  • A height of 1.35 mm.
  • A black casing.
