Texas Advanced Optoelectronic Solutions Inc. (TAOS) is offering two of its light-to-voltage converters in a new packagea 4-pin transfer-molded board (TMB) surface-mount package.

Last June, the company rolled the TSL12 and TSL13 light-to-voltage converters out in a 3-pin side-looker package.

The new 4-pin surface-mount package measures 1.35(H)-by-2.6(W)-by-3.8(L)mm. It is the smallest TAOS package that can accommodate its light-to-voltage converters.

The new design will enable designers to include the TSL12 and the TSL13 into high-volume light sensing applications in which low-profile and cost sensitivity are especially critical issues. Applications such as cellphones, printers and biometric fingerprint sensors can now realize the benefits of an integrated optoelectronic solutionlower noise, increased reliability, reduced board space, reduced design complexity and cycle time and reduced inventoryat price points for a discrete solution, according to TAOS.

Pricing is 65 cents each for the TSL12 and TSL13 devices in a 4-pin T package, and 59 cents each in the 3-pin version, for 1,000-piece quantities.
