CHIPLED - SFH 2716 A01

Providing drivers with perfectly illuminated roads: a compact brightness sensor for headlamp control

The new photodiode SFH 2716 A01 combines a good technical performance and a small package in the most economic way. Typical applications include headlamp control or automatic dimming of dashboard backlighting.

  • Very small SMT package
  • SMT package 0805, colorless clear resin, 2 mm x 1.25 mm x 0.8 mm
  • Special: Adapted to human eye sensitivity (Vλ)
  • Spectral range of sensitivity: (typ) 350 ... 1000 nm
  • For control and drive circuits
  • Ambient light detector
  • Exposure meter for daylight and artificial light
  • Sensor for backlight-dimming

The SFH 2716 A01 has a tiny chip with an active area of 0.348 mm2.

As a consequence, its sensitivity is lower and thus yields a photocurrent of 57 microampere (μA) at a brightness of 100 lux (lx).

The chip is mounted in a compact Chipled package measuring only (2 x 1.25 x 0.8) mm and the new photodiode is qualified for automotive applications.
