Light Source Detection
ams color sensors with dedicated infrared photodiode detection channels enable applications to analyze and identify the sources of ambient light. The ability to respond appropriately when operating in sunlight, in artificial light or in mixed lighting helps applications to perform various functions, such as display management and automatic white balancing.
ams offers both RGB and high-accuracy XYZ color sensors with dedicated IR channels. These include the TCS3400 RGB+IR and TCS3430 XYZ+2IR products, offered in a very small form factor at a price point suitable for the latest consumer electronics products.
The AS7350 is the market’s most advanced spectral ambient light sensor (ALS) for high-end mobile phone cameras and camera-based consumer devices. The sensor enables the highest quality images even in situations with extreme color contrast, or under non-ideal/mixed light source conditions, enabling professional-grade photography using a consumer device.
