The HBCS-1100 is a fully integrated module designed for optical reflective sensing. The module contains a 0.178 mm (0.007 in.) diameter 700 nm visible LED emitter and a matched I.C. photodetector. A bifurcated aspheric lens is used to image the active areas of the emitter and the detector to a single spot 4.27 mm (0.168 in.) in front of the package. The reflected signal can be sensed directly from the photodiode or through an internal transistor that can be configured as a high gain amplifier.
