Arduino Human Eye Response Non-Contact Gesture Detection and Attitude sensor APDS-9930 CJMCU-9930 Proximity
Proximity and non-contact gesture detection and attitude sensor APDS-9930
The APDS-9930 provides digital ambient light sensing, IR LED and a complete proximity detection system in a single 8 pin package.
The proximity function offers plug and play detection to 100 mm thus eliminating the need for factory calibration of the end equipment or sub-assembly.
The proximity detection feature operates well from bright sunlight to dark rooms.
The wide dynamic range also allows for operation in short distance detection behind dark glass such as a cell phone.
In addition, an internal state machine provides the ability to put the device into a low power mode in between ALS and proximity measurements providing very low average power consumption.
The ALS provides a photopic response to light intensity in very low light condition or behind a dark faceplate.
The proximity function is targeted specifically towards near field proximity applications. In cell phones, the proximity detection can detect when the user positions the phone close to their ear. The device is fast enough to provide proximity information at a high repetition rate needed when answering a phone call. This provides both improved “green” power saving capability and the added security to lock the computer when the user is not present.
The addition of the micro-optics lenses within the module, provide highly efficient transmission and reception of infrared energy which lowers overall power dissipation.
