Digital proximity detector, LED drvr., Vdd I2C interface


The TSL2672 family of devices provides proximity detection when coupled with an external IR LED. The devices incorporate a constant-current LED sink driver to pulse the external IR LED and achieve very low average power consumption using the low-power wait state with programmable wait time between proximity measurements. In addition, the devices are register-set and pin-compatible with the TSL2671 series and include a number of new and improved features, such as improved signal-to-noise and measurement accuracy. A proximity offset register allows compensation for optical system crosstalk between the IR LED and the sensor. To prevent false measurements, a proximity saturation bit indicates that the internal analog circuitry saturated. Interrupts have been enhanced with the addition of a sleep-after-interrupt feature that also allows for single-cycle operation.
