AN2042 explains how to design applications with optical sensors. The application note elaborates on the sensor flowchart and gives a step by step procedure to implement the sensor flowchart inside PSoC.

Introduction

Optical sensors, which are based on detection of light beam interruption, are widely used in practice. These sensors are installed in automatic door opening systems in the shops, garages and private apartments. They are used in a variety of applications. Identifying unauthorized object access, measuring liquid level in tanks, position of the movable part are few of those examples.
