Temperature and Ambient Light Error Correction

Download Whitepaper
The ISL29501 has the ability to perform real time correction of distance measurements due to changing temperature and ambient light conditions. The chip can be programmed to correct for a second order error polynomial. This document explains how to collect data, generate coefficients, and program the chip to do these error corrections. Renesas has had good results calculating the coefficients once per board design so it should not be necessary to collect data for each individual board.
