  • Publication number: 20230020275
    Abstract: The present invention provides a proximity sensing device with linear electrical offset calibration, which can record electrical offsets caused by different dark currents under different settings of the pulse count or the pulse time, and the proximity sensing device uses these electrical offsets to obtain the linear electrical offset ratio. Then calculate and infer the electrical offset generated in actual use through the linear electrical offset ratio to calibrate sensing signal.

  • Patent number: 11467268
    Abstract: Disclosures of the present invention describe an optical proximity sensor, which is particularly designed to have functionality of canceling an ambient light noise and/or an optical crosstalk noise by using light-to-frequency conversion technique, and comprises: a controlling and processing circuit, a lighting unit, a light receiving unit, an analog adder, a first DAC unit, a second DAC unit, and a light-to-digital conversion (LDC) unit. In the controlling of the controlling and processing circuit, the first DAC unit and the second DAC unit would respectively generate a first compensation current signal and a second compensation current signal to the analog adder, such that a noise signal of ambient light and a noise signal of optical crosstalk existing in an optical current signal of object reflection light would be canceled by the two compensation current signals in the analog adder.
