April 29, 2015 // By Peter Clarke
AMS AG has produced an ambient light sensor that has a packaged height of 0.32mm allowing it to be used in thin screens and wearable products.

AMS (Untepremstaetten, Austria) has introduced the TSL2584TSV, an ambient light sensor (ALS) in a through-silicon via (TSV) package which has a footprint 1.145mm by 1.66mm and a height of 0.32mm. The company claims it is half the size of other ALS.

The chip includes integrated on-chip interference filters to reject infrared light and produce a near-photopic response.

The TSL2584TSV is available for volume production today. It is priced at $0.58 each in order quantities of 1,000 pieces.
