    hello,

    I have achieved a proximity sensor circuit with
    the tsop4838 ir sensor. I just ran into this part:

    Now, I would like to know if anyone used the max44000
    part for proximity sensing ????

    And can anyone tell me what is the maximum distance
    that the max44000 part can detect an object. In the spec
    it says 1.5 uw/cms LSB??? From that info, how can one deduct it's
    maximum proximity capability???

    Also, what would be the benefits of using
    the tsop solution versus the max44000 solution.

    It seems to me that the max44000 is much simpler
    to connect given that it takes care of all the
    signal bursts for you!!!

    a little undecided,I would really need another
    point of view!!!

    All feedback is sincerely appreciated!
