Surface Mount Digital Color Sensors for Small Consumer Electronic Applications
Avago Technologies announced two miniature surface mount technology (SMT) digital color sensors for use in small consumer and portable electronic applications. The ADJD-S311, the smallest in the industry with dimensions of 2.2 mm × 2.2 mm × 0.76 mm, is a CMOS IC with integrated RGB filters that targets designers of portable devices which require higher integration, smaller size and low power consumption. The ADJD-S371-QR999 with dimensions of 3.9 mm × 4.5 mm × 1.8 mm is said to be the industry's first and smallest reflective digital color sensing module that incorporates a white LED and digital color sensor. The digital color sensors are four-channel Red, Green and Blue (RGB) and clear digital color sensors with 10-bit resolution which provide designers with easy integration, installation, and design flexibility - especially for those designs where board space is constrained. Some of the target applications include mobile and consumer products such as mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, hand-held games, portable color detection and measurement devices, and a wide range of other small consumer applications.
