For computers with a light sensor, typically laptop computers, Windows 10 has the ability to automatically adjust the screen brightness depending on the ambient light levels. This feature can be more annoying than helpful, either leaving your screen too dark or frequently adjusting the brightness levels.
Renesas' ambient light sensors can adjust a display's backlight, which improves user experience and power savings by optimizing the display's viewability. Their ultra-low light sensitivity, low power consumption, ideal spectral response, and easy to use simple output algorithm make them best-in-class.
Enable precise light measurements for cost-optimized systems using our ambient light sensors. Our fully-integrated ambient light sensors use a photodiode sensor AFE to imitate a human eye response in a wide range of environmental light conditions enabling easier-to-use and more precise solutions than discrete optical sensors.
