A new AEC-Q101-qualified, fully integrated proximity and ambient light optical sensor with an operating temperature range to +105°C was announced by the Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (Malvern, PA). The VCNL4020X01 combines an IR emitter, a photo-pin-diode for proximity, an ambient light detector, a signal processing IC, and a 16-bit ADC in one 4.8 mm x 2.3 mm x 0.8 mm rectangular lead-less (LLP) package. The three-in-one sensor features an interrupt function, supports I²C bus communication interface, and is said to simplify window and sensor placement in a wide variety of automotive, consumer, and industrial applications. Featuring low standby current consumption of 1.5 µA, the device offers:
- A supply voltage range of 2.5 V to 3.6 V.
- I²C bus voltage range from 1.7 V to 5 V.
- Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) of 3 for 168 hours of shelf life.
- Compatibility with lead (Pb)-free soldering.
