Evaluation Kit for TSL2541
The TSL2541 evaluation kit comes with everything needed to evaluate the TSL2541 ALS, Light-to-Digital sensor. The device features advanced digital Ambient Light Sensing (ALS) with two output channels for visible and IR light.
TSL2541 Ambient Light Sensor
that has a dark mold compound package which enables concealment behind inked glass. It approximates the human eye response to light intensity under varying lighting conditions and transforms this light intensity to a digital signal output capable through a 1.8V I²C interface. The ALS sensor features 2 output channels, a visible channel and an IR channel. The visible channel has a photodiode with a photopic Interferometric UV and IR blocking filter and the IR channel has a photodiode with an IR pass filter. Each channel has a dedicated integrating data converter which converts photodiode current into a 16-bit digital output. This digital output can be interfaced with a microprocessor where illuminance in lux is derived to accurately measure ambient light to control a displays backlight.
