SBOS681C July 2014 – November 2017 OPT3001
Ambient light sensors are used in a wide variety of applications that require control as a function of ambient light. Because ambient light sensors nominally match the human eye spectral response, they are superior to photodiodes when the goal is to create an experience for human beings. Very common applications include display optical-intensity control and industrial or home lighting control.
There are two categories of interface to the OPT3001: electrical and optical.
