Vishay – VEML6070: Integrated UV Light Sensor Features Filtron™ UV Technology


VEML6070 is an advanced UV light sensor with I2C protocol interface and designed by the CMOS process. It is easily operated via a simple I2C command. The VEML6070 offers high dynamic detection resolution and excellent performance under long-term solar UV exposure, while an active acknowledge (ACK) feature with threshold window settings sends out UVI alert messages under strong solar conditions. The ACK feature with threshold windows setting allows the UV sensor to send out a UVI alert message. Under a strong solar UVI condition, the smart ACK signal can be easily implemented by the software programming.
