Vishay VEML6035 I2C Ambient Light Sensor is a 16-bit, low power, and high-sensitivity CMOS light sensor that is operated via I2C command. This sensor consumes an active average power of 300µW. The VEML6035 sensor comes with a photodiode, amplifiers, and analog/digital circuits in a single chip. This sensor incorporates Filtron™ technology that provides good spectral sensitivity to match human eye responses. Typical applications include an ambient light sensor for mobile devices as well as industrial on/off lighting operation and optical switch for consumer, computing, industrial devices, and displays.
