Components: LED-Based Optical-Mouse Sensor Pushes Performance

The ADNS-3060, an LED-based optical sensor, offers enhanced tracking control when compared with previous-generation LED devices. It features 3.3-V (versus 5-V) operation, power-down consumption of 30 mA (versus 240 mA), a maximum clock frequency of 24 MHz (versus 18 MHz), and a maximum speed of 40 in./s at 6400 frames/s (versus 14 in./s at 1500 frames/s). The sensor also offers resolution up to 800 counts/in. It's designed to be used with the ADNS-2120/2120-001 lens, the ADNS-2220/2220-001 clip, and the HLMP-ED80-XX000 LED, which together form a complete mouse. Price is $0.56 each in high-volume quantities.
