The ISL29009IROZ-EVALZ evaluation board is used to evaluate the performance of Renesas' ISL29009 non-linear output current, low power ambient light photo detect IC.

The ISL29009 is a light-to-current silicon optical sensor combining a photodiode and current amplifiers on a single monolithic IC. Similar to human eyes, the photodiode has peak sensitivity at 550nm and spans from 400nm to 700nm, rejecting UV light and IR light. The input luminance range is from 0.3 lux to 10,000 lux.
