ams launches the world’s smallest integrated ambient light sensor (ALS) and proximity detection module, enabling mobile handset OEM’s serving the mid-range market segment to develop mobile devices with virtually bezel-less displays. The TMD2755 module is 40% smaller in area and 64% smaller in volume than comparable devices in the market today.
The TMD2755 provides a complete integrated 3-in-1 sensor solution, simplifying the phone manufacturer’s implementation, reducing board space requirements and enabling a best-in-class low-profile system design. The TMD2755 combines a low-power VCSEL emitter (with integrated, factory calibrated driver), an IR photodetector, and ambient light sensor in a narrow footprint and low profile 0.6mm height package. The new TMD2755 module’s footprint of just 1.1mm x 3.25mm is some 40% smaller than that of the next smallest comparable 3-in-1 (IR emitter + IR detector + ambient light sensor) modules on the market. Just 0.6mm high, the TMD2755 is also 64% smaller in volume (more info).
