SBOS681C July 2014 – November 2017 OPT3001
After completing the electrical design, the next task is the optomechancial design. Design a product case that includes a window to transmit the light from outside the product to the sensor, as shown in Figure 30. Design the window width and window height to give a ±45° field of view. A rigorous design of the field of view takes into account the location of the sensor area, as shown in Figure 37. The OPT3001 active sensor area is centered along one axis of the package top view, but has a minor offset on the other axis of the top view. Window sizing and placement is discussed in more rigorous detail in application report SBEA002, OPT3001: Ambient Light Sensor Application Guide.
