After uncovering optoelectronic products at our front door and garage, we finally get in the house, go straight to the couch, lie down, and grab the remote. We uncover optoelectronic products in and around our TV.
After getting through the front door in Episode 1 of our Welcome Home Series, we head to the garage to uncover infrared emitters and IR receivers used to stop the garage door from closing if an object is in the path of the door.
Vishay’s first ambient light sensor qualified to AEC-Q100, the VEML6031X00 features 16-bit resolution, two preconfigured slave addresses, and separate channels for visible light and infrared light.
Vishay's Optoelectronic products found around the home with our first episode of our Welcome Home Series focused on the front door.
One of the unique features that makes Vishay's IR Receivers the best at filtering out optical noise is the AGC function. This video explains the feature, how to use the mapping tool on the Vishay website, and where in the datasheet AGC is shown.
Industry leading sensitivity at 0.4 mW/m2 | More precise triggering versus signal strength | Near constant detection threshold over temperature | Reduced disturbance from DC light sources | Better input to output pulse accuracy.
VEMD8081 PIN photodiode was developed with enhanced sensitivity for visible and infrared light. The unique rectangular shape of the detector provides an active area of 5.4 mm2 and was built primarily for the sports wearables and smart watch markets.
Qualified for automotive, the K857PE combines high photo sensitivity with low 0.1 % crosstalk and virtually no tolerance between its segments and enables a variety of sensor and control applications for automotive, consumer, and industrial markets.
The entire display is enabled with Force Sensing simply by using Vishay Opto’s high-resolution proximity sensor. It is a great alternative to capacitive touch or can work as a “home” or “awake” button for large capacitive displays.
VEMD4010X01 and VEMD4110X01: High-speed, AEC-Q101 PIN photodiodes in custom 0805 package blocking all stray light from the sides. Light only irradiates from top giving a higher signal to noise response. Evaluating samples is recommended.
The VOMA618A offers a low input current solution for high reliability automotive applications. This low current is ideal for high efficiency power management applications.
SensorXplorer™ is an easy to use software program to quickly and easily assist you with evaluating Vishay’s light-to-digital optical sensors. Learn more by watching this informative highlight video.
The VCNL4200 digital proximity sensor is used in Vishay Opto’s Whack-A-Mole for wake-up and hammer sensing.
Vishay’s IR Receiver product portfolio is large and can be confusing when trying to select the best receiver for your application. This video helps guide you through the decision process to easily identify the preferred through-hole receiver to use.
Learn how our new 800 V SOP-4 PhotoTRIACs offer economical and superior isolated AC power switching.
The VCNL36687S is a fully integrated proximity sensor with sensing presence or proximity of an object out to 8 inches while consuming only 10% of the current. The VCNL36687S is especially suited for battery operated devices.
VOMA617A, Automotive AEC-Q101 qualified phototransistor optocoupler in SOP-5 mini-flat package for 30 % PCB space savings over DIP-4 package.
Next-generation miniature IR Receivers provide improved sensitivity, noise suppression, and pulse-width accuracy for IR remote control in televisions, set-top boxes, audio and video systems, air conditioners, cameras, video games, and more.
