Description
VDD 1
The TSL2550 is a digital-output light sensor with
a two-wire, SMBus serial interface. It combines
two photodiodes and a companding analog-todigital converter (ADC) on a single CMOS
integrated circuit to provide light measurements
over an effective 12-bit dynamic range with a
response similar to that of the human eye.

The TSL2550 is designed for use with broad wavelength light sources. One of the photodiodes (channel 0) is
sensitive to visible and infrared light, while the second photodiode (channel 1) is sensitive primarily to infrared
light. An integrating ADC converts the photodiode currents to channel 0 and channel 1 digital outputs. Channel
1 digital output is used to compensate for the effect of the infrared component of ambient light on channel 0
digital output. The ADC digital outputs of the two channels are used to obtain a value that approximates the
human eye response in the commonly used unit of Lux.
This device is intended primarily for use in applications in which measurement of ambient light is used to control
display backlighting such as laptop computers, PDAs, camcorders, and GPS systems. Other applications
include contrast control in LED signs and displays, camera exposure control, lighting controls, etc. The
integrating conversion technique used by the TSL2550 effectively eliminates the effect of flicker from
AC-powered lamps, increasing the stability of the measurement.

NOTES: 3. Optical measurements are made using small-angle incident radiation from light-emitting diode optical sources. Visible 640 nm LEDs
and infrared 940 nm LEDs are used for final product testing for compatibility with high volume production.
4. The 640 nm irradiance Ee is supplied by an AlInGaP light-emitting diode with the following characteristics: peak wavelength
λp = 640 nm and spectral halfwidth Δλ½ = 17 nm.
5. The 940 nm irradiance Ee is supplied by a GaAs light-emitting diode with the following characteristics: peak wavelength
λp = 940 nm and spectral halfwidth Δλ½ = 40 nm.
6. The sensor Lux is calculated using the empirical formula shown on p. 11 of this data sheet based on measured Ch0 and Ch1 ADC
count values for the light source specified. Actual Lux is obtained with a commercial luxmeter. The range of the (sensor Lux) / (actual
Lux) ratio is estimated based on the variation of the 640 nm and 940 nm optical parameters. Devices are not 100% tested with
fluorescent or incandescent light sources.

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
Analog-to-Digital Converter
al
id
The TSL2550 contains an integrating analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that integrates a photodiode current.
First it integrates channel 0 photodiode current and then it integrates channel 1 photodiode current. At the end
of the conversion cycle for each channel, the conversion result is transferred to the appropriate channel 0 or
channel 1 ADC register. The transfer is double-buffered to ensure that invalid data is not read during the transfer.
After the data is transferred, the TSL2550 automatically begins the next conversion cycle. A VALID bit is used
to indicate that data has been written to the ADC register after ADC is enabled.
Interface to the ADC and control of other device functions is accomplished using the standard 2-wire System
Management Bus (SMBus) interface. Both versions 1.1 and 2.0 of the SMBus are supported.
Digital Interface

lc s

te G
nt
st
il
lv
The ADC has two operating modes: standard and extended. In standard mode, the integration time is 400 mS
for each channel or 800 mS for both channel 0 and channel 1. Extended mode shortens the integration time
by a factor of five with a corresponding decrease in responsivity of 5 ×. The extended range allows the device
to operate at higher light levels, extending the overall dynamic range by a factor of five.
The TSL2550 contains an 8-bit command register that can be written and read via the SMBus. The command
register controls the overall operation of the device. There are two read-only registers that contain the latest
converted value of each of the two ADC channels. The SMBus slave address is hardwired internally as 0111001
(MSB to LSB, A6 to A0).
Both the send byte protocol and the receive byte protocol are implemented in the TSL2550. The send byte
protocol allows single bytes of data to be written to the device (see Figure 6). The written byte is called the
COMMAND byte. The receive byte protocol allows single bytes of data to be read from the device (see Figure
7). The receive data can be either the previously written COMMAND byte or the data from one of the ADC
channels. In Figure 6 and Figure 7, the clear area represents data sent by the host and the shaded area
represents data returned by the ambient light sensor or slave device.

Command Register
The command register is used primarily to:
D Select which ADC register will be read during a read cycle
D Switch the dynamic range of the device between standard and extended range modes
D Power the device up for operation or power it down for minimum power consumption

COMMAND
Read ADC channel 1
The content of the command register defaults to 0x00h when power is applied to the device, placing the device
into the power-down mode.
Once the TSL2550 is set to the standard range mode (0x18h) or the extended range mode (0x1Dh), the device
remains in that mode until it is powered down or the mode is changed via the command register.
The 0x03h command has two purposes: It is used to power up the device and can also be used to check that
the device is communicating properly. The value returned during a read cycle should be 0x03h.
ADC Register
ca
The TSL2550 contains two ADC registers (channel 0 and channel 1). Each ADC register contains two
component fields that are used to determine the logarithmic ADC count value: CHORD bits and STEP bits. The
CHORD bits correspond to the most significant portion of the ADC value and specifies a segment of the
piece-wise linear approximation. The STEP bits correspond to the least significant portion of the ADC count
value and specifies a linear value within a segment. CHORD and STEP bits all equal to 0 corresponds to a
condition in which the light level is below the detection limit of the sensor. CHORD and STEP bits all equal to
1 corresponds to an overflow condition.
Each of the two ADC value registers contain seven data bits and a valid bit as described in Table 2.

The specific ADC value register read depends on the last read command written to the command register, as
described above and in the Operation section, below.
The MSB of the ADC register (VALID bit B7) is used to indicate that data has been written to the ADC register
after the device is powered up as described in Command Register section.
al
id
Bits 6 through 0 contain the 7-bit code representing the ADC count value, which is proportional to a
photodetector current. In this code, the ADC count value is represented by a piece-wise linear approximation
to a log function. The transfer function is broken into 8 chords of 16 steps each. (This code is very similar to μ-law
code used in audio compression — it differs in that it does not have a sign bit and it is not inverted.) Table 3 shows
the relationship between the CHORD and STEP bits and the CHORD and STEP numbers and values. These
are used to calculate the ADC count value.

Operation
al
id
After applying VDD, the device will initially be in the power down state. To operate the device, issue an SMBus
Send Byte protocol with the device address and the appropriate command byte to read ADC channel 0 or ADC
channel 1 (see Table 1). To obtain the conversion result, issue an SMBus Receive Byte protocol with the device
address. The data byte received will correspond to the value in the ADC register (0 or 1) specified by the previous
command. If a conversion has not been completed since power up (either through VDD or power up command),
the valid bit will be 0, and the data will not be valid. If there is a valid conversion result available, the valid bit
will be set (1), and the remaining 7 bits will represent valid data from the previously selected ADC register. Data
may be read repeatedly from the currently selected ADC register, and although it will remain valid, the ADC
register will not be updated until a new conversion completes for that channel (800 ms total since there are two
serial 400 ms per channel conversion times in standard mode). Note also that the command register itself may
be read, as a check to be sure that the device is communicating properly.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
The TSL2550 is intended for use in ambient light detection applications, such as display backlight control, where
adjustments are made to display brightness or contrast based on the brightness of the ambient light, as
perceived by the human eye. Conventional silicon detectors respond strongly to infrared light, which the human
eye does not see. This can lead to significant error when the infrared content of the ambient light is high, such
as with incandescent lighting, due to the difference between the silicon detector response and the brightness
perceived by the human eye.

Light Level (lux) + (Ch0 * Ch1)

id
This problem is overcome in the TSL2550 through the use of two photodiodes. One of the photodiodes
(channel 0) is sensitive to both visible and infrared light, while the second photodiode (channel 1) is sensitive
primarily to infrared light. An integrating ADC converts the photodiode currents to channel 0 and channel 1 digital
outputs. Channel 1 digital output is used to compensate for the effect of the infrared component of light on the
channel 0 digital output. The ADC digital outputs from the two channels are used in a formula to obtain a value
that approximates the human eye response in the commonly used Illuminance unit of Lux. For standard mode:
R = Ch1 Counts / (Ch0 Counts − Ch1 Counts)
The formula above was obtained by optical testing with fluorescent and incandescent light sources. The light
level calculated from the formula will be slightly higher than the actual light level for sunlight and will be slightly
lower than the actual light level for composite fluorescent and incandescent light sources.
NOTE:
Please see TAOS application notes for additional information, including implementing a display
brightness control system with the TSL2550, and for a simple implementation of the equation shown
above suitable for use in embedded microcontrollers.
Table 4 contains a summary of the typical sensor outputs for several common light sources.

LIGHT SOURCE
ch
Light from 50 or 60 Hz sources, and especially fluorescent lighting, has a high harmonic content. Since the
TSL2550 integrates the ambient light over an approximately 400 millisecond interval (per channel), this light
ripple is typically reduced to less than ¼ LSB.
Te
Power Supply Decoupling
The power supply lines must be decoupled with a 0.1 μF capacitor placed as close to the device package as
possible. The bypass capacitor should have low effective series resistance (ESR) and effective series
inductance (ESI), such as the common ceramic types, which provide a low impedance path to ground at high
frequencies to handle transient currents caused by internal logic switching.

MANUFACTURING INFORMATION
Moisture Sensitivity
Optical characteristics of the device can be adversely affected during the soldering process by the release and
vaporization of moisture that has been previously absorbed into the package molding compound.
Package D
al
id
To ensure the package molding compound contains the smallest amount of absorbed moisture possible, all
devices shipped in carrier tape have been pre-baked and shipped in a sealed moisture-barrier bag. No further
action is necessary if these devices are processed through solder reflow within 24 hours of the seal being broken
on the moisture-barrier bag.
lv
However, for all devices shipped in tubes or if the seal on the moisture barrier bag has been broken for 24 hours
or longer, it is recommended that the following procedures be used to ensure the package molding compound
contains the smallest amount of absorbed moisture possible.
am
lc s
on A
te G
nt
st
il
For devices shipped in tubes:
1. Remove devices from tubes
2. Bake devices for 4 hours, at 90°C
3. After cooling, load devices back into tubes
4. Perform solder reflow within 24 hours after bake
Bake only a quantity of devices that can be processed through solder reflow in 24 hours. Devices can be
re-baked for 4 hours, at 90°C for a cumulative total of 12 hours (3 bakes for 4 hours at 90°C).
For devices shipped in carrier tape:
1. Bake devices for 4 hours, at 90°C in the tape
2. Perform solder reflow within 24 hours after bake
Bake only a quantity of devices that can be processed through solder reflow in 24 hours. Devices can be
re−baked for 4 hours in tape, at 90°C for a cumulative total of 12 hours (3 bakes for 4 hours at 90°C).
Package T
ca
To ensure the package molding compound contains the smallest amount of absorbed moisture possible, each
device is dry-baked prior to being packed for shipping. Devices are packed in a sealed aluminized envelope
with silica gel to protect them from ambient moisture during shipping, handling, and storage before use.
ni
The T package has been assigned a moisture sensitivity level of MSL 3 and the devices should be stored under
the following conditions:
ch
Temperature Range
Relative Humidity
Total Time
Opened Time
5°C to 50°C
60% maximum
6 months from the date code on the aluminized envelope — if unopened
168 hours or fewer
Te
Rebaking will be required if the devices have been stored unopened for more than 6 months or if the aluminized
envelope has been open for more than 168 hours. If rebaking is required, it should be done at 90°C for 4 hours.
