PREMSTAETTEN, Austria, Aug. 5, 2016 — AMS AG has announced the TMD3700 optical sensor module for color, ambient light and proximity sensing.
The small 4 × 1.75-mm footprint has a height of 1 mm for next-generation mobile phones with tight layouts and mechanical design constraints. A wide 45° field-of-view, an ambient light sensing accuracy of ±10 percent and an operating range of 200 mlux to 60 klux behind dark glass enable smartphones to measure the surrounding light environments and automatically adjust display color and brightness for optimal viewing.
The TMD3700 color sensor channels have UV- and IR-blocking filters and a dedicated converter allowing simultaneous data capture necessary for accurate measurements. The combination of photopic color and ambient light sensing enables smartphones to perform real-time adjustment of display properties such as white point, color gamut and color saturation.
