The TCS3414 digital color light sensors are designed to accurately derive the color chromaticity and illuminance of ambient light and provide a digital output with 16-bits of resolution.
It includes an 8 × 2 array of filtered photodiodes, analog-to-digital converters, and control functions on a single monolithic CMOS integrated circuit.
The TCS3414 device can help:
- automatically adjust the display brightness of a backlight to extend battery, increase lamp life, and provide optimum viewing in diverse lighting conditions,
- white-color balance display panel and/or captured images in diverse lighting conditions, and
- manage RGB LED backlighting to maintain color consistency over a long period of time. Additional applications include street light control, security lighting, sunlight harvesting, and automotive instrumentation clusters.
