Fully integrated proximity sensors increase efficiency
Stephen LawElectronics proximity proximity sensors Sensors
VISHAY SEMICONDUCTORS VCNL36821S and VCNL36826S fully integrated proximity sensors increase efficiency and performance in consumer and industrial applications, while providing an IR emitter and a vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), respectively. Devices combine a photodiode, signal processing IC and 12-bit ADC in a compact 2.55mm by 2.05mm by 1.0mm surface-mount package. The smaller packages at lower cost are suitable for space-constrained battery-powered applications. Devices come with ranges to 300mm and also provide collision detection in toys and consumer/industrial robots. Components feature low power consumption down to 6µA to increase efficiency in these applications.
