The ams TMD3702VC module combines proximity detection, color sense (RGBC+IR), and digital ambient light sensing (ALS). The device a 1.44-mm thick module that incorporates an IR VCSEL and a factory-calibrated VCSEL driver. Proximity detection provides object detection by photodiode detection of reflected IR energy (sourced by the integrated VCSEL). Detect/release events are interrupt driven, and occur when proximity result crosses upper and/or lower threshold settings.

The device provides a +/-48 deg field of view. It offers five channels and provides programmable gain and integration time. The module is I2C fast mode interface compatible and requires 1.8 V for operation.
