Proximity Sensors are designed for use in detecting the presence of an object or motion detection in various industrial, mobile, electronic appliances and retail automations. Examples of proximity sensor usage include detecting an out-of-paper condition in a printer or a mobile phone screen that dims to save battery life when placed near a face.
Ambient Light Sensors
Ambient Light Sensors provide precise light detection for a wide range of ambient brightness and are commonly used in LCD Backlight Control in mobile phones, LCD TV/Panel and Notebook applications. This series of products are part of the Sensor Solution. Ambient Light sensors detect the amount of light available and signal as to whether or not backlighting is necessary and also control the turning on and off of the lighting system.
