January 13, 2020 Alix Paultre

At CES recently, ams launched the AS7350, presented as the most advanced spectral ambient light sensor (ALS) available for high-end mobile phone cameras. The sensor identifies light sources via spectral reconstruction, to achieve automatic white-point balancing accuracy under any lighting conditions. 

The AS7350 identifies any type of light source, and features 11 channels, 8 equally spaced in the visible, 1 flicker, 1 NIR, and 1 clear channel, all in a 3.1mm x 2.0mm x 1.0mm LGA package. The flicker channel detects artificial light sources with flicker frequencies from 50 Hz - 3 kHz and beyond, depending on implementation.
