ML8511 UV Sensor


Ultra-Violet sensor from ROHM Semiconductor is suitable for indoor or outdoor use

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.

Features
  • Photodiode sensitive to UV-A and UV-B
  • Embedded operational amplifier
  • Analog voltage output
  • Low supply current (300 μA typ.) and low standby current (0.1 μA typ.)
  • Small and thin surface-mount package (4.0 x 3.7 x 0.73 mm, 12-pin ceramic QFN)

Applications
  • Smartphones
  • Watches
  • Weather stations
  • Bicycle navigation
  • Accessories
  • Gaming
