RGB Color Sensor



RGB color sensor integrated in small and thin package

The S10942-01CT is a color sensor molded into a plastic package having a 3-channel (RGB) photodiode sensitive to the Red (λ=590 nm Min.), Green (λ=480 to 600 nm) and Blue (λ=400 to 540 nm) regions of the spectrum. When compared to the previous model (S9702), the S10942-01CT is signifi cantly miniaturized the package size by 80% in cubic volume and PC board mount space by 77% in area. The S10942-01CT is ideal for RGB-LCD backlight monitors installed in such as mobile phones.

- Small, thin package: 3.0 × 1.6 × 10t mm
- 3-channel (RGB) Si photodiode
- Photosensitive area: 1 × 1 mm/3-segment (RGB)
- RoHS compliant
- Surface mount type
