Gesture sensor APDS-9960 (Avago)


#1

Hi,

maybe I am blind or bad in searching but is there any SDK for the gesture sensor on LCD module? I would like to play with it.

Hello,
we do not have implementation of this sensor in the SDK yet. One of the reason is that this sensor is not low-power. It takes few milliamps (5-10) of current and also the MCU has to be running constantly to measure the time differences between reflections (ar at least constantly reading registers).

We do have some initial really old code for demo purporses. Would that help you to get started?

Hello,

I know it is power hungry but I just would like to play with it and than use it with module constantly connected to DC power so it wont matter.

The old code would be great at least I will know how to start so please send it to me if you can. Thank you.
