The APDS-9930 provides digital ambient light sensing (ALS), IR LED and a complete proximity detection system in a single 8 pin package. The proximity function offers plug and play detection to 100 mm (without front glass) thus eliminating the need for factory calibration of the end equipment or sub-assembly. The proximity detection feature operates well from bright sunlight to dark rooms. The wide dynamic range also allows for operation in short distance detection behind dark glass such as a cell phone. In addition, an internal state machine provides the ability to put the device into a low power mode in between ALS and proximity measurements providing very low average power consumption. The ALS provides a photo pic response to light intensity in very low light condition or behind a dark face-plate.The APDS-9930 is particularly useful for display management with the purpose of extending battery life and providing optimum viewing in diverse lighting conditions. Display panel and keyboard back-lighting can account for up to 30 to 40 percent of total platform power. The ALS features are ideal for use in notebook PCs, LCD monitors, flat-panel televisions, and cell phones.The proximity function is targeted specifically towards near field proximity applications. In cell phones, the proximity detection can detect when the user positions
