TSL2584TSV Ambient Light Sensor

The TSL2584TSV is a very-high sensitivity light-to-digital converter that transforms light intensity into a digital signal output with a fast-mode I²C interface. The device combines one broadband photodiode (visible plus infrared), one infrared-responding photodiode, and a photopic infrared-blocking filter on a single CMOS integrated circuit. Two integrating analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) convert the photodiode …
