TCS34725/TCS34727 Color Light-to-Digital Converter with IR Blocking Filter

ams' red, green, blue (RGB), and clear light sensing for health/fitness, process control, and backlight applications

Image of ams' TCS34725/TSC34727 Color Light to Digital Converter with IR Blocking Filterams’ TCS34725 and TCS34727 are color light-to-digital converters that provide a digital return of  RGB, and clear light sensing values. An IR blocking filter, integrated on-chip and localized to the color sensing photodiodes, minimizes the IR spectral component of the incoming light and allows color measurements to be made accurately. The high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, and IR blocking filter make the TCS34725 and TCS34727 ideal color sensor solutions for use under various lighting conditions.

The TCS34725 and TCS34727 color sensors are ideal for RGB LED back light control, solid-state lighting, health/fitness products, industrial process controls, and medical diagnostic equipment. In addition, the IR blocking filter enables the color sensors to perform ambient light sensing (ALS). ALS is widely used in display-based products such as smartphones, notebooks, and TVs to sense the lighting environment and enable automatic display brightness for optimal viewing and power savings.
