The ISL29035 is an integrated ambient and infrared light-to-digital converter with an I2C (SMBus compatible) interface. Its advanced self-calibrated photodiode array emulates human eye response with excellent IR rejection.

The optical sensor evaluation kit (OSEK) is designed to evaluate the performance of various optical sensor devices. This evaluation kit includes pads (footprints) for various Renesas optical sensor package types: 4/6/8/10-lead ODFN. Only one device type is mounted on the board for evaluation purposes. A fully assembled and tested evaluation board is provided.

The kit consists of the hardware, software and documentation listed below:
