VEML6030 is a superb high accuracy ambient light digital sensor with 16-bit resolutions in a miniature transparent 2mm x 2mm package that integrated a low noise amplifier, highly sensitive photodiode, 16-bit A/D converter and its supports i2C bus communication interface, interrupt, and power-saving feature.

This sensor will capture light and converts to a digital value range from zero to 120,000 LUX. The VEML6030 is suitable used for Mobile, Handheld devices, smartphones, backlight dimming, industrial sensing, home automation, optical switches, and display panels. For more technical details please refer to the datasheet below.
