Photo Interrupter for Handhelds and CE Portables

September 21, 2007 7:27 am | Product Releases | Comments

Sharp Microelectronics launches its GP1S296HCPSF a small photo interrupter with a housing volume measuring 2.5 mm × 1.8 mm × 1.9 mm. Due to this level of miniaturization, the registrable pitch is reduced from 0.3 mm to 0.2 mm. It can be used in slim product designs that require a low mounting height and limited mounting space at the same time. The unit is suitable for portable applications such as a sensor for controlling auto focus and zoom drives in digital pocket cameras.
