Electronics proximity sensors

VISHAY VCNL3036X01 Proximity sensors integrate a proximity sensor (PS), a mux and a driver for up to three external IREDs into one small package. Device incorporates photodiodes, amplifiers and analog-to-digital converting circuits into a single chip by the CMOS process. PS programmable interrupt features of individual high and low thresholds offer the best utilization of resources and power saving on the microcontroller. Devices offer a small form factor of 4.0mm x 2.36mm x 0.75mm (L x W x H) and are AEC-Q101 qualified. Key applications include force feedback functions, proximity/optical switches for computing, automotive and industrial devices.
