The ISL29006IROZ-EVALZ evaluation board is used to evaluate the performance of Renesas' ISL29006 low power, current-output ambient light photo detect IC.

The ISL29006 is a light-to-current silicon optical sensor that combines a photodiode array and a current amplifier on a single monolithic IC. The photodiode’s spectral sensitivity approximates the human eye response peaking at 550nm with virtually no infrared (IR) response.


  • 0.5 lux to 10,000 lux range
  • 1.8V to 3.6V supply range
  • Low supply current (3.5μA @ 100 lux)
  • Fast response time
  • Close to human eye response
  • IR Rejection
  • Internal dark current compensation
  • Lux to current source or/and sink
  • Excellent output linearity of luminance
  • 6 Ld ODFN: 2mm x 2.1mm x 0.7mm
  • Pb-free (RoHS compliant)


  • Display and keypad dimming for:
    • Mobile devices: smartphones, PDAs, GPS
    • Computing devices: notebook PCs, webpads
    • Consumer devices: LCD-TVs, digital picture frames, digital cameras
  • Industrial and medical light or proximity sensing
