BH1620FVC Rohm is an analog Ambient Light Sensor in which output current is in proportion to brightness. Is the most suitable to obtain the ambient light data for adjusting LCD and keypad backlight of mobile phone for power saving and better visibility. Has spectral sensitivity close to human eyes sensitivity.

BH1745NUC-E2 Rohm  is digital color sensor with I2C bus interface. It senses Red, Green and Blue light and converts them to digital values. The high sensitivity and wide dynamic range makes its the most suitable to obtain the illuminance and color temperature of ambient light for adjusting LCD backlight of TV, mobile phone and tablet. It is possible to detect very wide range light intensity.

ISL29023IROZ-T7  is an integrated ambient and infrared Light to Digital Sensor with I2C interface. Its  advanced self-calibrated photodiode array emulates human eye response with excellent IR rejection.

STMicroelectronics VL53L0CXV0DH/1  is a new generation Time-of-Flight laser-ranging module housed in the smallest package on the market today, providing accurate distance measurement whatever the target reflectances unlike conventional technologies. It can measure absolute distances up to 2m, setting a new benchmark in ranging performance levels, opening door to various new applications, such as user detection for personal computers, laptops, tablets and IoT (Energy Saving), Robotics, white goods (hand detection in automatic faucets, soap dispensers).

STMicroelectronics VL6180XV0NR/1 is a Proximity and Ambient Light Sensor (ALS). Module is the latest product based on ST's FlightSense™  technology. This is a ground-breaking technology allowing absolute distance to be measured independent of target reflactance. It is easy to integrate and saves the end-product maker long and costly optical and mechanical design optimizations. The module is designed for low power operations. Host control and result reading is performed using I2C interface.

AMS302 Panasonic is a photo type high sensitive Light Sensor features built-in optical filter for spectral response similar to that of the human eye, photocurrent is proportional to illumination and uses environmentally friendly silicon chips. Suitable for use with brightness detection for LCD backlight control for devices (LCD TVs, car navigation systems and mobile PCs), wall clocks, day and night power saving operation of domestic appliances and automatic lighting of lighting apparatus (domestic lighting, security light).

TCS3200D-TR ams is programmable color light-to-frequency converter. Digital inputs and digital outpus allow direct interface to a microcontroller or ther logic circuit. The light-to-frequency converter reads an 8x8 array of photodiodes (16 - blue filters, 16 - green filters, 16 - red filters, and 16 - clear with no filters). All photodiodes of the same color are connected in parallel. Pins S2 and S3 are used to select which group of photodiodes (red, green, blue, clear) are active.
