MM3697XBRE – Proximity and Ambient Light Sensor

MinebeaMitsumi offers a combined proximity and ambient light sensor for appliance and consumer electronics applications requiring battery saving and user detection features. Our sensor has two integrated photodiodes: one to detect light frequency (near to human eye spectral sensitivity) and the other for close-range proximity sensing. Its small size (2.2mm x 1.65 mm) and digital (I2C) communication makes it stealthy and easy to be integrated in most applications.


  • Digital I2C Interface
  • Proximity sensing up to 30 cm range
  • Measures light frequency in the human eye sensitivity range
  • 16 bit ADC for both proximity and light sensitivity measurement
