AS73210 - JENCOLOR® Analog XYZ Sensor

Industrial-grade XYZ color sensor with large detector area


The AS73210 is long-term stable over the entire product lifetime and resistant to external influences such as temperature or aging drifts, due to the special JENCOLOR® interference filter technology. The JENCOLOR® sensors are made of 19x3 photodiodes integrated on-chip (special pin silicon technology with advanced sensitivity). The diodes are aligned as segments of a multiple-element hexagonal matrix structure with the diameter of 2 mm.  

Not Recommended for New Designs!
ams AG is discontinuing production of this device. Final lifetime buy order must be placed by June 30, 2018.
