The OPT3001 is a single-chip lux meter, measuring
the intensity of light as visible by the human eye. The
precision spectral response and strong IR rejection of
the device enables the OPT3001 to accurately meter
the intensity of light as seen by the human eye
regardless of light source. The strong IR rejection
also aids in maintaining high accuracy when industrial
design calls for mounting the sensor under dark glass
for aesthetics. The OPT3001 is designed for systems
that create light-based experiences for humans, and
an ideal preferred replacement for photodiodes,
photoresistors, or other ambient light sensors with
less human eye matching and IR rejection.
Measurements can be made from 0.01 lux up to
83k lux without manually selecting full-scale ranges
by using the built-in, full-scale setting feature. This
capability allows light measurement over a 23-bit
effective dynamic range.
The digital operation is flexible for system integration.
Measurements can be either continuous or singleshot. The control and interrupt system features
autonomous operation, allowing the processor to
sleep while the sensor searches for appropriate
wake-up events to report via the interrupt pin. The
digital output is reported over an I2C- and SMBuscompatible, two-wire serial interface.
The low power consumption and low power-supply
voltage capability of the OPT3001 enhance the
battery life of battery-powered systems.

Refers to a control field within the configuration register.
Tested with the white LED calibrated to 2k lux and an 850-nm LED.
Characterized by measuring fixed near-full-scale light levels on the higher adjacent full-scale range setting.
PSRR is the percent change of the measured lux output from its current value, divided by the change in power supply voltage, as
characterized by results from 3.6-V and 1.6-V power supplies.
The conversion time, from start of conversion until the data are ready to be read, is the integration time plus 3 ms.
The specified leakage current is dominated by the production test equipment limitations. Typical values are much smaller.

7 Detailed Description
7.1 Overview
The OPT3001 measures the ambient light that illuminates the device. This device measures light with a spectral
response very closely matched to the human eye, and with very good infrared rejection.
Matching the sensor spectral response to that of the human eye response is vital because ambient light sensors
are used to measure and help create ideal human lighting experiences. Strong rejection of infrared light, which a
human does not see, is a crucial component of this matching. This matching makes the OPT3001 especially
good for operation underneath windows that are visibly dark, but infrared transmissive.
The OPT3001 is fully self-contained to measure the ambient light and report the result in lux digitally over the I2C
bus. The result can also be used to alert a system and interrupt a processor with the INT pin. The result can also
be summarized with a programmable window comparison and communicated with the INT pin.
The OPT3001 can be configured into an automatic full-scale, range-setting mode that always selects the optimal
full-scale range setting for the lighting conditions. This mode frees the user from having to program their software
for potential iterative cycles of measurement and readjustment of the full-scale range until optimal for any given
measurement. The device can be commanded to operate continuously or in single-shot measurement modes.
The device integrates its result over either 100 ms or 800 ms, so the effects of 50-Hz and 60-Hz noise sources
from typical light bulbs are nominally reduced to a minimum.
The device starts up in a low-power shutdown state, such that the OPT3001 only consumes active-operation
power after being programmed into an active state.
The OPT3001 optical filtering system is not excessively sensitive to non-ideal particles and micro-shadows on
the optical surface. This reduced sensitivity is a result of the relatively minor device dependency on uniformdensity optical illumination of the sensor area for infrared rejection. Proper optical surface cleanliness is always
recommended for best results on all optical devices.

7.3 Feature Description
7.3.1 Human Eye Matching
The OPT3001 spectral response closely matches that of the human eye. If the ambient light sensor
measurement is used to help create a good human experience, or create optical conditions that are optimal for a
human, the sensor must measure the same spectrum of light that a human sees.
The device also has excellent infrared light (IR) rejection. This IR rejection is especially important because many
real-world lighting sources have significant infrared content that humans do not see. If the sensor measures
infrared light that the human eye does not see, then a true human experience is not accurately represented.
Furthermore, if the ambient light sensor is hidden underneath a dark window (such that the end-product user
cannot see the sensor) the infrared rejection of the OPT3001 becomes significantly more important because
many dark windows attenuate visible light but transmit infrared light. This attenuation of visible light and lack of
attenuation of IR light amplifies the ratio of the infrared light to visible light that illuminates the sensor. Results
can still be well matched to the human eye under this condition because of the high infrared rejection of the
OPT3001.
7.3.2 Automatic Full-Scale Range Setting
The OPT3001 has an automatic full-scale range setting feature that eliminates the need to predict and set the
optimal range for the device. In this mode, the OPT3001 automatically selects the optimal full-scale range for the
given lighting condition. The OPT3001 has a high degree of result matching between the full-scale range
settings. This matching eliminates the problem of varying results or the need for range-specific, user-calibrated
gain factors when different full-scale ranges are chosen. For further details, see the Automatic Full-Scale Setting
Mode section.
7.3.3 Interrupt Operation, INT Pin, and Interrupt Reporting Mechanisms
The device has an interrupt reporting system that allows the processor connected to the I2C bus to go to sleep,
or otherwise ignore the device results, until a user-defined event occurs that requires possible action.
Alternatively, this same mechanism can also be used with any system that can take advantage of a single digital
signal that indicates whether the light is above or below levels of interest.
The interrupt event conditions are controlled by the high-limit and low-limit registers, as well as the configuration
register latch and fault count fields. The results of comparing the result register with the high-limit register and
low-limit register are referred to as fault events. The fault count register dictates how many consecutive sameresult fault events are required to trigger an interrupt event and subsequently change the state of the interrupt
reporting mechanisms, which are the INT pin, the flag high field, and the flag low field. The latch field allows a
choice between a latched window-style comparison and a transparent hysteresis-style comparison.
The INT pin has an open-drain output, which requires the use of a pull-up resistor. This open-drain output allows
multiple devices with open-drain INT pins to be connected to the same line, thus creating a logical NOR or AND
function between the devices. The polarity of the INT pin can be controlled with the polarity of interrupt field in
the configuration register. When the POL field is set to 0, the pin operates in an active low behavior that pulls the
pin low when the INT pin becomes active. When the POL field is set to 1, the pin operates in an active high
behavior and becomes high impedance, thus allowing the pin to go high when the INT pin becomes active.
Additional details of the interrupt reporting registers are described in the Interrupt Reporting Mechanism Modes
and Internal Registers sections.

Feature Description (continued)
7.3.4 I2C Bus Overview
The OPT3001 offers compatibility with both I2C and SMBus interfaces. The I2C and SMBus protocols are
essentially compatible with one another. The I2C interface is used throughout this document as the primary
example with the SMBus protocol specified only when a difference between the two protocols is discussed.
The OPT3001 is connected to the bus with two pins: an SCL clock input pin and an SDA open-drain bidirectional
data pin. The bus must be controlled by a master device that generates the serial clock (SCL), controls the bus
access, and generates start and stop conditions. To address a specific device, the master initiates a start
condition by pulling the data signal line (SDA) from a high logic level to a low logic level while SCL is high. All
slaves on the bus shift in the slave address byte on the SCL rising edge, with the last bit indicating whether a
read or write operation is intended. During the ninth clock pulse, the slave being addressed responds to the
master by generating an acknowledge bit by pulling SDA low.
Data transfer is then initiated and eight bits of data are sent, followed by an acknowledge bit. During data
transfer, SDA must remain stable while SCL is high. Any change in SDA while SCL is high is interpreted as a
start or stop condition. When all data are transferred, the master generates a stop condition, indicated by pulling
SDA from low to high while SCL is high. The OPT3001 includes a 28-ms timeout on the I2C interface to prevent
locking up the bus. If the SCL line is held low for this duration of time, the bus state machine is reset.
7.3.4.1 Serial Bus Address
To communicate with the OPT3001, the master must first initiate an I2C start command. Then, the master must
address slave devices via a slave address byte. The slave address byte consists of seven address bits and a
direction bit that indicates whether the action is to be a read or write operation.
Four I2C addresses are possible by connecting the ADDR pin to one of four pins: GND, VDD, SDA, or SCL.
Table 2 summarizes the possible addresses with the corresponding ADDR pin configuration. The state of the
ADDR pin is sampled on every bus communication and must be driven or connected to the desired level before
any activity on the interface occurs.

7.3.4.2 Serial Interface
The OPT3001 operates as a slave device on both the I2C bus and SMBus. Connections to the bus are made via
the SCL clock input line and the SDA open-drain I/O line. The OPT3001 supports the transmission protocol for
standard mode (up to 100 kHz), fast mode (up to 400 kHz), and high-speed mode (up to 2.6 MHz). All data bytes
are transmitted most-significant bits first.
The SDA and SCL pins feature integrated spike-suppression filters and Schmitt triggers to minimize the effects of
input spikes and bus noise. See the Electrical Interface section for further details of the I2C bus noise immunity.

7.4 Device Functional Modes
7.4.1 Automatic Full-Scale Setting Mode
The OPT3001 has an automatic full-scale-range setting mode that eliminates the need for a user to predict and
set the optimal range for the device. This mode is entered when the configuration register range number field
(RN[3:0]) is set to 1100b.
The first measurement that the device takes in auto-range mode is a 10-ms range assessment measurement.
The device then determines the appropriate full-scale range to take its first full measurement.
For subsequent measurements, the full-scale range is set by the result of the previous measurement. If a
measurement is towards the low side of full-scale, the full-scale range is decreased by one or two settings for the
next measurement. If a measurement is towards the upper side of full-scale, the full-scale range is increased by
one setting for the next measurement.
If the measurement exceeds the full-scale range, resulting from a fast increasing optical transient event, the
current measurement is aborted. This invalid measurement is not reported. A 10-ms measurement is taken to
assess and properly reset the full-scale range. Then, a new measurement is taken with this proper full-scale
range. Therefore, during a fast increasing optical transient in this mode, a measurement can possibly take longer
to complete and report than indicated by the configuration register conversion time field (CT).
7.4.2 Interrupt Reporting Mechanism Modes
There are two major types of interrupt reporting mechanism modes: latched window-style comparison mode and
transparent hysteresis-style comparison mode. The configuration register latch field (L) (see the configuration
register, bit 4) controls which of these two modes is used. An end-of-conversion mode is also associated with
each major mode type. The end-of-conversion mode is active when the two most significant bits of the threshold
low register are set to 11b. The mechanisms report via the flag high and flag low fields, the conversion ready
field, and the INT pin.
7.4.2.1 Latched Window-Style Comparison Mode
The latched window-style comparison mode is typically selected when using the OPT3001 to interrupt an
external processor. In this mode, a fault is recognized when the input signal is above the high-limit register or
below the low-limit register. When the consecutive fault events trigger the interrupt reporting mechanisms, these
mechanisms are latched, thus reporting whether the fault is the result of a high or low comparison. These
mechanisms remain latched until the configuration register is read, which clears the INT pin and flag high and
flag low fields. The SMBus alert response protocol, described in detail in the SMBus Alert Response section,
clears the pin but does not clear the flag high and flag low fields. The behavior of this mode, along with the
conversion ready flag, is summarized in Table 3. Note that Table 3 does not apply when the two threshold low
register MSBs (see the Transparent Hysteresis-Style Comparison Mode section for clarification on the MSBs) are
set to 11b.

The high-limit register is assumed to be greater than the low-limit register. If this assumption is incorrect, the flag high field and flag low
field can take on different behaviors.
The INT pin depends on the setting of the polarity field (POL). The INT pin is low when the pin state is active and POL = 0 (active low)
or when the pin state is inactive and POL = 1 (active high).
Immediately after the configuration register is read, the device automatically resets the conversion ready field to its 0 state. Thus, if two
configuration register reads are performed immediately after a conversion completion, the first reads 1 and the second reads 0.
7.4.2.2 Transparent Hysteresis-Style Comparison Mode
The transparent hysteresis-style comparison mode is typically used when a single digital signal is desired that
indicates whether the input light is higher than or lower than a light level of interest. If the result register is higher
than the high-limit register for a consecutive number of events set by the fault count field, the INT line is set to
active, the flag high field is set to 1, and the flag low field is set to 0. If the result register is lower than the lowlimit register for a consecutive number of events set by the fault count field, the INT line is set to inactive, the flag
low field is set to 1, and the flag high field is set to 0. The INT pin and flag high and flag low fields do not change
state with configuration reads and writes. The INT pin and flag fields continually report the appropriate
comparison of the light to the low-limit and high-limit registers. The device does not respond to the SMBus alert
response protocol while in either of the two transparent comparison modes (configuration register, latch field =
0). The behavior of this mode, along with the conversion ready is summarized in Table 4. Note that Table 4 does
not apply when the two threshold low register MSBs (LE[3:2] from Table 12) are set to 11.

The high-limit register is assumed to be greater than the low-limit register. If this assumption is incorrect, the flag high field and flag low

or when the pin state is inactive and POL = 1 (active high).
Immediately after the configuration register is read, the device automatically resets the conversion ready field to its 0 state. Thus, if two
configuration register reads are performed immediately after a conversion completion, the first reads 1 and the second reads 0.

7.4.2.3 End-of-Conversion Mode
An end-of-conversion indicator mode can be used when every measurement is desired to be read by the
processor, prompted by the INT pin going active on every measurement completion. This mode is entered by
setting the most significant two bits of the low-limit register (LE[3:2] from the Low-Limit Register) to 11b. This
end-of-conversion mode is typically used in conjunction with the latched window-style comparison mode. The INT
pin becomes inactive when the configuration register is read or the configuration register is written with a nonshutdown parameter or in response to an SMBus alert response. Table 5 summarizes the interrupt reporting
mechanisms as a result of various operations.

or when the pin state is inactive and POL = 1 (active high).
Immediately after the configuration register is read, the device automatically resets the conversion ready field to its 0 state. Thus, if two
configuration register reads are performed immediately after a conversion completion, the first reads 1 and the second reads 0.
Note that when transitioning from end-of-conversion mode to the standard comparison modes (that is,
programming LE[3:2] from 11b to 00b) while the configuration register latch field (L) is 1, a subsequent write to
the configuration register latch field (L) to 0 is necessary in order to properly clear the INT pin. The latch field can
then be set back to 1 if desired.
7.4.2.4 End-of-Conversion and Transparent Hysteresis-Style Comparison Mode
The combination of end-of-conversion mode and transparent hysteresis-style comparison mode can also be

7.5 Programming
The OPT3001 supports the transmission protocol for standard mode (up to 100 kHz), fast mode (up to 400 kHz),
and high-speed mode (up to 2.6 MHz). Fast and standard modes are described as the default protocol, referred
to as F/S. High-speed mode is described in the High-Speed I2C Mode section.
7.5.1 Writing and Reading
Accessing a specific register on the OPT3001 is accomplished by writing the appropriate register address during
the I2C transaction sequence. Refer to Table 7 for a complete list of registers and their corresponding register
addresses. The value for the register address (as shown in Figure 19) is the first byte transferred after the slave
address byte with the R/W bit low.

Frame 2: Register Address Byte
(1) The value of the slave address byte is determined by the ADDR pin setting; see Table 2.
Figure 19. Setting the I2C Register Address
Writing to a register begins with the first byte transmitted by the master. This byte is the slave address with the
R/W bit low. The OPT3001 then acknowledges receipt of a valid address. The next byte transmitted by the
master is the address of the register that data are to be written to. The next two bytes are written to the register
addressed by the register address. The OPT3001 acknowledges receipt of each data byte. The master may
terminate the data transfer by generating a start or stop condition.
When reading from the OPT3001, the last value stored in the register address by a write operation determines
which register is read during a read operation. To change the register address for a read operation, a new partial
I2C write transaction must be initiated. This partial write is accomplished by issuing a slave address byte with the
R/W bit low, followed by the register address byte and a stop command. The master then generates a start
condition and sends the slave address byte with the R/W bit high to initiate the read command. The next byte is
transmitted by the slave and is the most significant byte of the register indicated by the register address. This
byte is followed by an acknowledge from the master; then the slave transmits the least significant byte. The
master acknowledges receipt of the data byte. The master may terminate the data transfer by generating a notacknowledge after receiving any data byte, or by generating a start or stop condition. If repeated reads from the
same register are desired, continually sending the register address bytes is not necessary; the OPT3001 retains
the register address until that number is changed by the next write operation.

Figure 21. I2C Read Example
7.5.1.1 High-Speed I2C Mode
When the bus is idle, both the SDA and SCL lines are pulled high by the pull-up resistors or active pull-up
devices. The master generates a start condition followed by a valid serial byte containing the high-speed (HS)
master code 0000 1XXXb. This transmission is made in either standard mode or fast mode (up to 400 kHz). The
OPT3001 does not acknowledge the HS master code but does recognize the code and switches its internal filters
to support a 2.6-MHz operation.
The master then generates a repeated start condition (a repeated start condition has the same timing as the start
condition). After this repeated start condition, the protocol is the same as F/S mode, except that transmission
speeds up to 2.6 MHz are allowed. Instead of using a stop condition, use repeated start conditions to secure the
bus in HS mode. A stop condition ends the HS mode and switches all internal filters of the OPT3001 to support
the F/S mode.
7.5.1.2 General-Call Reset Command
The I2C general-call reset allows the host controller in one command to reset all devices on the bus that respond
to the general-call reset command. The general call is initiated by writing to the I2C address 0 (0000 0000b). The
reset command is initiated when the subsequent second address byte is 06h (0000 0110b). With this transaction,
the device issues an acknowledge bit and sets all of its registers to the power-on-reset default condition.

Programming (continued)
7.5.1.3 SMBus Alert Response
The SMBus alert response provides a quick identification for which device issued the interrupt. Without this alert
response capability, the processor does not know which device pulled the interrupt line when there are multiple
slave devices connected.
The OPT3001 is designed to respond to the SMBus alert response address, when in the latched window-style
comparison mode (configuration register, latch field = 1). The OPT3001 does not respond to the SMBus alert
response when in transparent mode (configuration register, latch field = 0).
The response behavior of the OPT3001 to the SMBus alert response is shown in Figure 22. When the interrupt
line to the processor is pulled to active, the master can broadcast the alert response slave address (0001
1001b). Following this alert response, any slave devices that generated an alert identify themselves by
acknowledging the alert response and sending their respective I2C address on the bus. The alert response can
activate several different slave devices simultaneously. If more than one slave attempts to respond, bus
arbitration rules apply. The device with the lowest address wins the arbitration. If the OPT3001 loses the
arbitration, the device does not acknowledge the I2C transaction and its INT pin remains in an active state,
prompting the I2C master processor to issue a subsequent SMBus alert response. When the OPT3001 wins the
arbitration, the device acknowledges the transaction and sets its INT pin to inactive. The master can issue that
same command again, as many times as necessary to clear the INT pin. See the Interrupt Reporting Mechanism
Modes section for additional details of how the flags and INT pin are controlled. The master can obtain
information about the source of the OPT3001 interrupt from the address broadcast in the above process. The
flag high field (configuration register, bit 6) is sent as the final LSB of the address to provide the master additional
information about the cause of the OPT3001 interrupt. If the master requires additional information, the result
register or the configuration register can be queried. The flag high and flag low fields are not cleared upon an
SMBus alert response.

The formula to translate this register into lux is given in Equation 1:
lux = LSB_Size × R[11:0]
(1)
where:
LSB_Size = 0.01 × 2E[3:0]
(2)
LSB_Size can also be taken from Table 9. The complete lux equation is shown in Equation 3:
lux = 0.01 × (2E[3:0]) × R[11:0]
(3)
A series of result register output examples with the corresponding LSB weight and resulting lux are given in
Table 10. Note that many combinations of exponents (E[3:0]) and fractional results (R[11:0]) can map onto the
same lux result, as shown in the examples of Table 10.

Note that the exponent field can be disabled (set to zero) by enabling the exponent mask (configuration register,
ME field = 1) and manually programming the full-scale range (configuration register, RN[3:0] < 1100b (0Ch)),
allowing for simpler operation in a manually-programmed, full-scale mode. Calculating lux from the result register
contents only requires multiplying the result register by the LSB weight (in lux) associated with the specific
programmed full-scale range (see Table 9). See the Low-Limit Register for details.
See the configuration register conversion time field (CT, bit 11) description for more information on lux resolution
as a function of conversion time.
7.6.1.1.2 Configuration Register (offset = 01h) [reset = C810h]
This register controls the major operational modes of the device. This register has 11 fields, which are
documented below. If a measurement conversion is in progress when the configuration register is written, the
active measurement conversion immediately aborts. If the new configuration register directs a new conversion,
that conversion is subsequently started.

1100b
Range number field (read or write).
The range number field selects the full-scale lux range of the device. The format of this field is
the same as the result register exponent field (E[3:0]); see Table 9. When RN[3:0] is set to
1100b (0Ch), the device operates in automatic full-scale setting mode, as described in the
Automatic Full-Scale Setting Mode section. In this mode, the automatically chosen range is
reported in the result exponent (register 00h, E[3:0]).
The device powers up as 1100 in automatic full-scale setting mode. Codes 1101b, 1110b, and
1111b (0Dh, 0Eh, and 0Fh) are reserved for future use.

Description
1b
Conversion time field (read or write).
The conversion time field determines the length of the light to digital conversion process. The
choices are 100 ms and 800 ms. A longer integration time allows for a lower noise
measurement.
The conversion time also relates to the effective resolution of the data conversion process. The
800-ms conversion time allows for the fully specified lux resolution. The 100-ms conversion
time with full-scale ranges above 0101b for E[3:0] in the result and configuration registers also
allows for the fully specified lux resolution. The 100-ms conversion time with full-scale ranges
below and including 0101b for E[3:0] can reduce the effective result resolution by up to three
bits, as a function of the selected full-scale range. Range 0101b reduces by one bit. Ranges
0100b, 0011b, 0010b, and 0001b reduces by two bits. Range 0000b reduces by three bits.
The result register format and associated LSB weight does not change as a function of the
conversion time.
0 = 100 ms
1 = 800 ms
00b
Mode of conversion operation field (read or write).
The mode of conversion operation field controls whether the device is operating in continuous
conversion, single-shot, or low-power shutdown mode. The default is 00b (shutdown mode),
such that upon power-up, the device only consumes operational level power after appropriately
programming the device.
When single-shot mode is selected by writing 01b to this field, the field continues to read 01b
while the device is actively converting. When the single-shot conversion is complete, the mode
of conversion operation field is automatically set to 00b and the device is shut down.
When the device enters shutdown mode, either by completing a single-shot conversion or by a
manual write to the configuration register, there is no change to the state of the reporting flags
(conversion ready, flag high, flag low) or the INT pin. These signals are retained for
subsequent read operations while the device is in shutdown mode.
00 = Shutdown (default)
01 = Single-shot
10, 11 = Continuous conversions
0b
Overflow flag field (read-only).
The overflow flag field indicates when an overflow condition occurs in the data conversion
process, typically because the light illuminating the device exceeds the programmed full-scale
range of the device. Under this condition OVF is set to 1, otherwise OVF remains at 0. The
field is reevaluated on every measurement.
If the full-scale range is manually set (RN[3:0] field < 1100b), the overflow flag field can be set
while the result register reports a value less than full-scale. This result occurs if the input light
has a temporary high spike level that temporarily overloads the integrating ADC converter
circuitry but returns to a level within range before the conversion is complete. Thus, the
overflow flag reports a possible error in the conversion process. This behavior is common to
integrating-style converters.
If the full-scale range is automatically set (RN[3:0] field = 1100b), the only condition that sets
the overflow flag field is if the input light is beyond the full-scale level of the entire device.
When there is an overflow condition and the full-scale range is not at maximum, the OPT3001
aborts its current conversion, sets the full-scale range to a higher level, and starts a new
conversion. The flag is set at the end of the process. This process repeats until there is either
no overflow condition or until the full-scale range is set to its maximum range.
0b
Conversion ready field (read-only).
The conversion ready field indicates when a conversion completes. The field is set to 1 at the
end of a conversion and is cleared (set to 0) when the configuration register is subsequently
read or written with any value except one containing the shutdown mode (mode of operation
field, M[1:0] = 00b). Writing a shutdown mode does not affect the state of this field; see the
Interrupt Reporting Mechanism Modes section for more details.
0b
Flag high field (read-only).
The flag high field (FH) identifies that the result of a conversion is larger than a specified level
of interest. FH is set to 1 when the result is larger than the level in the high-limit register
(register address 03h) for a consecutive number of measurements defined by the fault count
field (FC[1:0]). See the Interrupt Reporting Mechanism Modes section for more details on
clearing and other behaviors of this field.
0b
Flag low field (read-only).
The flag low field (FL) identifies that the result of a conversion is smaller than a specified level
of interest. FL is set to 1 when the result is smaller than the level in the low-limit register
(register address 02h) for a consecutive number of measurements defined by the fault count
field (FC[1:0]). See the Interrupt Reporting Mechanism Modes section for more details on
clearing and other behaviors of this field.

1b
Latch field (read or write).
The latch field controls the functionality of the interrupt reporting mechanisms: the INT pin, the
flag high field (FH), and flag low field (FL). This bit selects the reporting style between a
latched window-style comparison and a transparent hysteresis-style comparison.
0 = The device functions in transparent hysteresis-style comparison operation, where the three
interrupt reporting mechanisms directly reflect the comparison of the result register with the
high- and low-limit registers with no user-controlled clearing event. See the Interrupt Operation,
INT Pin, and Interrupt Reporting Mechanisms section for further details.
1 = The device functions in latched window-style comparison operation, latching the interrupt
reporting mechanisms until a user-controlled clearing event.
0b
Polarity field (read or write).
The polarity field controls the polarity or active state of the INT pin.
0 = The INT pin reports active low, pulling the pin low upon an interrupt event.
1 = Operation of the INT pin is inverted, where the INT pin reports active high, becoming high
impedance and allowing the INT pin to be pulled high upon an interrupt event.
0b
Mask exponent field (read or write).
The mask exponent field forces the result register exponent field (register 00h, bits E[3:0]) to
0000b when the full-scale range is manually set, which can simplify the processing of the
result register when the full-scale range is manually programmed. This behavior occurs when
the mask exponent field is set to 1 and the range number field (RN[3:0]) is set to less than
1100b. Note that the masking is only performed to the result register. When using the interrupt
reporting mechanisms, the result comparison with the low-limit and high-limit registers is
unaffected by the ME field.
00b
Fault count field (read or write).
The fault count field instructs the device as to how many consecutive fault events are required
to trigger the interrupt reporting mechanisms: the INT pin, the flag high field (FH), and flag low
field (FL). The fault events are described in the latch field (L), flag high field (FH), and flag low
field (FL) descriptions.
00 = One fault count (default)
01 = Two fault counts
10 = Four fault counts
11 = Eight fault counts

NOTE
The result and limit registers are all converted into lux values internally for comparison.
These registers can have different exponent fields. However, when using a manually-set
full-scale range (configuration register, RN < 0Ch, with mask enable (ME) active),
programming the manually-set full-scale range into the LE[3:0] and HE[3:0] fields can
simplify the choice of programming the register. This simplification results in the user only
having to think about the fractional result and not the exponent part of the result.

7.6.1.1.4 High-Limit Register (offset = 03h) [reset = BFFFh]
The high-limit register sets the upper comparison limit for the interrupt reporting mechanisms: the INT pin, the
flag high field (FH), and flag low field (FL), as described in the Interrupt Operation, INT Pin, and Interrupt
Reporting Mechanisms section. The format of this register is almost identical to the format of the low-limit register
(described in the Low-Limit Register) and the result register (described in the Result Register). To explain the
similarity in more detail, the high-limit register exponent (HE[3:0]) is similar to the low-limit register exponent
(LE[3:0]) and the result register exponent (E[3:0]). The high-limit register result (TH[11:0]) is similar to the lowlimit result (TH[11:0]) and the result register result (R[11:0]). Note that the comparison of the high-limit register
with the result register is unaffected by the ME bit.
When using a manually-set, full-scale range with the mask enable (ME) active, programming the manually-set,
full-scale range into the HE[3:0] bits can simplify the choice of values required to program into this register. The
formula to translate this register into lux is similar to Equation 4. The full-scale values are similar to Table 9.

8 Application and Implementation
NOTE
Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component
specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are
responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should
validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
8.1 Application Information
Ambient light sensors are used in a wide variety of applications that require control as a function of ambient light.
Because ambient light sensors nominally match the human eye spectral response, they are superior to
photodiodes when the goal is to create an experience for human beings. Very common applications include
display optical-intensity control and industrial or home lighting control.
There are two categories of interface to the OPT3001: electrical and optical.
8.1.1 Electrical Interface
The electrical interface is quite simple, as illustrated in Figure 29. Connect the OPT3001 I2C SDA and SCL pins
to the same pins of an applications processor, microcontroller, or other digital processor. If that digital processor
requires an interrupt resulting from an event of interest from the OPT3001, then connect the INT pin to either an
interrupt or general-purpose I/O pin of the processor. There are multiple uses for this interrupt, including signaling
the system to wake up from low-power mode, processing other tasks while waiting for an ambient light event of
interest, or alerting the processor that a sample is ready to be read. Connect pullup resistors between a power
supply appropriate for digital communication and the SDA and SCL pins (because they have open-drain output
structures). If the INT pin is used, connect a pullup resistor to the INT pin. A typical value for these pullup
resistors is 10 kΩ. The resistor choice can be optimized in conjunction to the bus capacitance to balance the
system speed, power, noise immunity, and other requirements.
The power supply and grounding considerations are discussed in the Power-Supply Recommendations section.
Although spike suppression is integrated in the SDA and SCL pin circuits, use proper layout practices to
minimize the amount of coupling into the communication lines. One possible introduction of noise occurs from
capacitively coupling signal edges between the two communication lines themselves. Another possible noise
introduction comes from other switching noise sources present in the system, especially for long communication
lines. In noisy environments, shield communication lines to reduce the possibility of unintended noise coupling
into the digital I/O lines that could be incorrectly interpreted.
8.1.2 Optical Interface
The optical interface is physically located within the package, facing away from the PCB, as specified by the
Sensor Area in Figure 37.
Physical components, such as a plastic housing and a window that allows light from outside of the design to
illuminate the sensor (see Figure 30), can help protect the OPT3001 and neighboring circuitry. Sometimes, a
dark or opaque window is used to further enhance the visual appeal of the design by hiding the sensor from
view. This window material is typically transparent plastic or glass.
Any physical component that affects the light that illuminates the sensing area of a light sensor also affects the
performance of that light sensor. Therefore, for optimal performance, make sure to understand and control the
effect of these components. Design a window width and height to permit light from a sufficient field of view to
illuminate the sensor. For best performance, use a field of view of at least ±35°, or ideally ±45° or more.
Understanding and designing the field of view is discussed further in application report SBEA002, OPT3001:
Ambient Light Sensor Application Guide.

Application Information (continued)
The visible-spectrum transmission for dark windows typically ranges between 5% to 30%, but can be less than
1%. Specify a visible-spectrum transmission as low as, but no more than, necessary to achieve sufficient visual
appeal because decreased transmission decreases the available light for the sensor to measure. The windows
are made dark by either applying an ink to a transparent window material, or including a dye or other optical
substance within the window material itself. This attenuating transmission in the visible spectrum of the window
creates a ratio between the light on the outside of the design and the light that is measured by the OPT3001. To
accurately measure the light outside of the design, compensate the OPT3001 measurement for this ratio; an
example is given in Dark Window Selection and Compensation.
Ambient light sensors are used to help create ideal lighting experiences for humans; therefore, the matching of
the sensor spectral response to that of the human eye response is vital. Infrared light is not visible to the human
eye, and can interfere with the measurement of visible light when sensors lack infrared rejection. Therefore, the
ratio of visible light to interfering infrared light affects the accuracy of any practical system that represents the
human eye. The strong rejection of infrared light by the OPT3001 allows measurements consistent with human
perception under high-infrared lighting conditions, such as from incandescent, halogen, or sunlight sources.
Although the inks and dyes of dark windows serve their primary purpose of being minimally transmissive to
visible light, some inks and dyes can also be very transmissive to infrared light. The use of these inks and dyes
further decreases the ratio of visible to infrared light, and thus decreases sensor measurement accuracy.
However, because of the excellent infrared rejection of the OPT3001, this effect is minimized, and good results
are achieved under a dark window with similar spectral responses to those shown in Figure 31.
For best accuracy, avoid grill-like window structures, unless the designer understands the optical effects
sufficiently. These grill-like window structures create a nonuniform illumination pattern at the sensor that make
light measurement results vary with placement tolerances and angle of incidence of the light. If a grill-like
structure is desired, the OPT3001 is an excellent sensor choice because it is minimally sensitive to illumination
uniformity issues disrupting the measurement process.
Light pipes can appear attractive for aiding in the optomechanical design that brings light to the sensor; however,
do not use light pipes with any ambient light sensor unless the system designer fully understands the
ramifications of the optical physics of light pipes within the full context of his design and objectives.
8.2 Typical Application
Measuring the ambient light with the OPT3001 in a product case and under a dark window is described in this

Typical Application (continued)
8.2.1 Design Requirements
The basic requirements of this design are:
• Sensor is hidden under dark glass so that sensor is not obviously visible. Note that this requirement is
subjective to designer preference.
• Accuracy of measurement of fluorescent light is 15%
• Variation in measurement between fluorescent, halogen, and incandescent bulbs (also known as light source
variation) is as small as possible.
8.2.2 Detailed Design Procedure
8.2.2.1 Optomechanical Design
After completing the electrical design, the next task is the optomechancial design. Design a product case that
includes a window to transmit the light from outside the product to the sensor, as shown in Figure 30. Design the
window width and window height to give a ±45° field of view. A rigorous design of the field of view takes into
account the location of the sensor area, as shown in Figure 37. The OPT3001 active sensor area is centered
along one axis of the package top view, but has a minor offset on the other axis of the top view. Window sizing
and placement is discussed in more rigorous detail in application report SBEA002, OPT3001: Ambient Light
Sensor Application Guide.

8.2.2.2 Dark Window Selection and Compensation
There are several approaches to selecting and compensating for a dark window. One of many approaches is the
method described here.
Sample several different windows with various levels of darkness. Choose a window that is dark enough to
optimize the balance between the aesthetics of the device and sensor performance. Note that the aesthetic
evaluation is the subjective opinion of the designer; therefore, it is more important to see the window on the
physical design rather than refer to window transmission specifications on paper. Make sure that the chosen
window is not darker than absolutely necessary because a darker window allows less light to illuminate the
sensor and therefore impedes sensor accuracy.
The window chosen for this application example is dark and has less than 7% transmission at 550 nm.Figure 31
shows the normalized response of the spectrum. Note that the equipment used to measure the transmission
spectrum is not capable of measuring the absolute accuracy (non-normalized) of the dark window sample, but
only the relative normalized spectrum. Also note that the window is much more transmissive to infrared
wavelengths longer than 700 nm than to visible wavelengths between 400 nm and 650 nm. This imbalance
between infrared and visible light decreases the ratio of visible light to infrared light at the sensor. Although it is
preferable to have the window decrease this ratio as little as possible (by having a window with a close ratio of
visible transmission to infrared transmission), the OPT3001 still performs well as shown in Figure 34.

After choosing the dark window, measure the attenuating effect of the dark window for later compensation. In
order to measure this attenuation, measure a fluorescent light source with a lux meter, then measure that same
light with the OPT3001 under the dark window. To measure accurately, it is important to use a fixture that can
accommodate either the lux meter or the design containing the OPT3001 and dark window, with the center of
each of the sensing areas being in exactly the same X, Y, Z location, as shown in Figure 32. The Z placement of
the design (distance from the light source) is the top of the window, and not the OPT3001 itself.

The fluorescent light in this location measures 1000 lux with the lux meter, and 73 lux with the OPT3001 under
the dark window within the application. Therefore, the window has an effective transmission of 7.3% for the
fluorescent light. This 7.3% is the weighted average attenuation across the entire spectrum, weighted by the
spectral response of the lux meter (or photopic response).
For all subsequent OPT3001 measurements under this dark window, the following formula is applied.
Compensated Measurement = Uncompensated Measurement / (7.3%)

Typical Application (continued)
8.2.3 Application Curves
To validate that the design example now measures correctly, create a sequential number of different light
intensities with the fluorescent light by using neutral density filters to attenuate the light. Different light intensities
can also be created by changing the distance between the light source, and the measurement devices. However,
these two methods for changing the light level have minor accuracy tradeoffs that are beyond the scope of this
discussion. Measure each intensity with both the lux meter and the OPT3001 under the window, and
compensate using Equation 5. The results are displayed in Figure 33, and show that the application accurately
reports results very similar to the lux meter.
To validate that the design measures a variety of light sources correctly, despite the large ratio of infrared
transmission to visible light transmission of the window, measure the application with a halogen bulb and an
incandescent bulb. Use the physical location and light attenuation procedures that were used for the fluorescent
light. The results are shown in Figure 34.
The addition of the dark window changes the results as seen by comparing the results of the same measurement
with a window (Figure 34) and without a window (Figure 3). Even after the expected change, the performance is
still good. All data are both within 15% of the correct answer, and within 15% of the other bulb measurements.
Results can vary at different angles of light because the OPT3001 does not match the lux meter at all angles of
light.
If the measurement variation between the light sources is not acceptable, choose a different window that has a
closer ratio of visible light transmission to infrared light transmission.

8.3 Do's and Don'ts
As with any optical product, special care must be taken into consideration when handling the OPT3001. Although
the OPT3001 has low sensitivity to dust and scratches, proper optical device handling procedures are still
recommended.
The optical surface of the device must be kept clean for optimal performance in both prototyping with the device
and mass production manufacturing procedures. Tweezers with plastic or rubber contact surfaces are
recommended to avoid scratches on the optical surface. Avoid manipulation with metal tools when possible. The
optical surface must be kept clean of fingerprints, dust, and other optical-inhibiting contaminants.
If the device optical surface requires cleaning, the use of de-ionized water or isopropyl alcohol is recommended.
A few gentile brushes with a soft swab are appropriate. Avoid potentially abrasive cleaning and manipulating
tools and excessive force that can scratch the optical surface.
If the OPT3001 performs less than optimally, inspect the optical surface for dirt, scratches, or other optical
artifacts.

9 Power-Supply Recommendations
Although the OPT3001 has low sensitivity to power-supply issues, good practices are always recommended. For
best performance, the OPT3001 VDD pin must have a stable, low-noise power supply with a 100-nF bypass
capacitor close to the device and solid grounding. There are many options for powering the OPT3001 because
the device current consumption levels are very low.

10 Layout
10.1 Layout Guidelines
The PCB layout design for the OPT3001 requires a couple of considerations. Bypass the power supply with a
capacitor placed close to the OPT3001. Note that optically reflective surfaces of components also affect the
performance of the design. The three-dimensional geometry of all components and structures around the sensor
must be taken into consideration to prevent unexpected results from secondary optical reflections. Placing
capacitors and components at a distance of at least twice the height of the component is usually sufficient. The
most optimal optical layout is to place all close components on the opposite side of the PCB from the OPT3001.
However, this approach may not be practical for the constraints of every design.
Electrically connecting the thermal pad to ground is recommended. This connection can be created either with a
PCB trace or with vias to ground directly on the thermal pad itself. If the thermal pad contains vias, they are
recommended to be of a small diameter (< 0.2 mm) to prevent them from wicking the solder away from the
appropriate surfaces.
An example PCB layout with the OPT3001 is shown in Figure 35.

Reproduction of significant portions of TI information in TI data books or data sheets is permissible only if reproduction is without alteration
and is accompanied by all associated warranties, conditions, limitations, and notices. TI is not responsible or liable for such altered
documentation. Information of third parties may be subject to additional restrictions.
Resale of TI components or services with statements different from or beyond the parameters stated by TI for that component or service
voids all express and any implied warranties for the associated TI component or service and is an unfair and deceptive business practice.
TI is not responsible or liable for any such statements.
Buyer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with all legal, regulatory and safety-related requirements
concerning its products, and any use of TI components in its applications, notwithstanding any applications-related information or support
that may be provided by TI. Buyer represents and agrees that it has all the necessary expertise to create and implement safeguards which
anticipate dangerous consequences of failures, monitor failures and their consequences, lessen the likelihood of failures that might cause
harm and take appropriate remedial actions. Buyer will fully indemnify TI and its representatives against any damages arising out of the use
of any TI components in safety-critical applications.
In some cases, TI components may be promoted specifically to facilitate safety-related applications. With such components, TI’s goal is to
help enable customers to design and create their own end-product solutions that meet applicable functional safety standards and
requirements. Nonetheless, such components are subject to these terms.
No TI components are authorized for use in FDA Class III (or similar life-critical medical equipment) unless authorized officers of the parties
have executed a special agreement specifically governing such use.
Only those TI components which TI has specifically designated as military grade or “enhanced plastic” are designed and intended for use in
military/aerospace applications or environments. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that any military or aerospace use of TI components
which have not been so designated is solely at the Buyer's risk, and that Buyer is solely responsible for compliance with all legal and
regulatory requirements in connection with such use.
TI has specifically designated certain components as meeting ISO/TS16949 requirements, mainly for automotive use. In any case of use of
non-designated products, TI will not be responsible for any failure to meet ISO/TS16949.
