  • Patent number: 10317278
    Abstract: Differing from conventional ambient light sensors at least having drawbacks of huge circuit area and high manufacturing cost, the present invention discloses an ambient light sensor showing advantages of small circuit area and low manufacturing cost. This ambient light sensor has functionality of photodiode leakage current compensation, and comprises: a temperature sensing unit, a microprocessor unit, a conversion unit, and a lookup table unit. The microprocessor unit is configured to find out a reference parameter for a first dark current from the lookup table unit according to a measured data of ambient temperature. Subsequently, the conversion unit is controlled to apply a current amplifying process to a second dark current. Therefore, after subtracting an output current of the first photodiode from the second dark current been treated with the current amplifying process, the output current been treated with a leakage current compensating process is produced and outputted.
