The ML8511 UV sensor from ROHM Semiconductor is suitable for acquiring UV intensity indoors or outdoors. The ML8511 is equipped with an internal amplifier that converts photo-current to voltage depending on the UV intensity. This unique feature offers an easy interface to external circuits such as ADC. In the power-down mode, typical standby current is 0.1 μA, enabling longer battery life.
