The MAX44000PMB1 peripheral module provides the necessary hardware to interface the MAX44000 ambient and infrared proximity sensor to any system that utilizes Pmod™-compatible expansion ports configurable for I²C communication. The IC combines a wide-dynamic range ambient light sensor with an integrated infrared (IR) proximity sensor. The on-chip ambient light sensor has the ability to make wide dynamic range 0.03 lux to 65,535 lux measurements. An on-chip IR proximity detector is matched with an integrated IR LED driver. All readings are available on an I²C communication bus.
