Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) provides the infrared photo-diode (quantum-type infrared sensor) based on the manufacturing technology of compound semiconductor which has been developing with magnetometric sensor products.
Cooling process is not necessary and room temperature operation is possible, while the advantage of quantum type infrared sensors, such as a fast response and a direct-current output, remains.
This feature enhances ease of use, and makes small and thin size possible.
AKM provides an infrared sensor element IR1011 and sensor IC AK9752/AK9750 which integrates infrared sensor elements and other components such as a signal processing IC.
IR1011 is suitable for a infrared sensor element which is applied to the measuring instruments of gas concentration or temperature.
AK9752/AK9750 can be use as an all-in-one human detection sensor.
The AK9752AE is a human presence sensor for short range applications, detection distance about 1m. It is capable of detection through glass and suitable for sophisticated designed Portable PCs and home information products.
The AK9752AE integrates AKM’s original InSb quantum IR sensor element, an analog front end circuit that converts current output of the element into voltage, a dedicated thermometer to measure the element temperature, a 16-bit A/D converter (ADC), an I2C interface and an interrupt output.
AK9750 is a sensor IC which integrates 4ch infrared sensors, a signal processing IC, a field of view limiter for determining detection area, and an optical filter.
Human detection can be easily achieved by this integration.
AK9750 provides 16-bit digital output in I2C format after calibrating an offset and gain variation of each sensor element by the signal processing IC.
This device can detect human presence not only in motion but also not in motion because it converts infrared of human body to electrical signal directly.
Suitable for a human detection sensor in PC, IoT applications, and household equipment.
IR1011 is a quantum-type ultrasmall infrared sensor corresponding to surface mounting, which can operate at room temperature.
This sensor is a InSb photo diode besed on manufacturing technologies of AKM's Hall elements.
The sensor can detect infrared with no power supply, and has features of quantum-type infrared sensor such as high sensitivity, high speed response and DC output.

Classification of infrared sensors
Emission spectrum from object
The infrared rays are light of wavelength from 0.75 to 1000μm. The human body or any objects emit the infrared light,
and its spectral irradiance depends on their temperature.
