Avago Low-Power Optical Sensors enables over a year of battery life for cordless mice using a single AA battery
Avago Technologies today announced two new low-power optical sensors for wireless mouse applications. The ADNS-2080 and ADNS-3000 LED-based sensors leverage an advanced low-power architecture and automatic power management modes to enable over a year of battery life for cordless mice using a single AA battery. The ADNS-2080 and ADNS-3000 optical sensors provide precise, high-speed tracking for wireless mice, with high-speed motion detection of up to 30 inches per second (ips) and 20g acceleration detection. The sensors also feature selectable resolution of up to 2000 counts per inch (cpi) for highly accurate, sensitive navigation.
The small form factor devices have on-chip oscillators, reducing external component count, and do not require precision optical alignment, facilitating high-volume assembly. These features simplify mouse designs and provide cost savings to customers. The ADNS-2080 optical sensor is priced at $0.95 each for quantities up to 1,000 units and the ADNS-3000 optical sensor is priced at $0.85 each for quantities up to 1,000 units.
