  • The VD6281 (1.83 x 1.0 x 0.55 mm) is the smallest 6-channel, ambient light sensor (ALS) on the market. Light measurement is fast and accurate thanks to an individual ADC and readout circuitry for each color channel. The VD6281 uses high-end interferometric filters with precise responses to assist camera white-balance in less than 8 ms. The device also employs a UV channel for natural or artificial light detection

    With a patented architecture and a high-performance photodiode design, the VD6281 can extract light flickering frequencies to enhance camera experience and remove banding effects. The VD6281 is the only sensor able to extract different light flicker waveforms including combined lights or contemporary LED sources with square signals.
