Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduces its models TEMD6010FX01 and TEMD5510FX01 ambient light sensing photodiodes that are qualified to the AEC Q101 standard, a reliability test qualification procedure for discrete semiconductors published by the Automotive Electronics Council. Their automotive applications include rain, light and tunnel sensors; brightness control for dashboard and navigation displays; and automatically turning on the headlights at dusk. They provide a linear response to illuminance from 0.1 lux to 100 klux with good lot-to-lot repeatability over the extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +100°C. Lot-to-lot repeatability allow customers to eliminate calibration steps in their manufacturing processes. The photodiodes are RoHS compliant, free of halogens and compatible with lead (Pb)-free soldering.
