Date: January 2011
KernelVersion: 2.6.37
From ISL29018 Data Sheet (FN6619.4, Oct 8, 2012) regarding the
infrared suppression:
Scheme 0, makes full n (4, 8, 12, 16) bits (unsigned) proximity
detection. The range of Scheme 0 proximity count is from 0 to
2^n. Logic 1 of this bit, Scheme 1, makes n-1 (3, 7, 11, 15)
bits (2's complementary) proximity_less_ambient detection. The
range of Scheme 1 proximity count is from -2^(n-1) to 2^(n-1).
The sign bit is extended for resolutions less than 16. While
Scheme 0 has wider dynamic range, Scheme 1 proximity detection
is less affected by the ambient IR noise variation.
0 Sensing IR from LED and ambient
1 Sensing IR from LED with ambient IR rejection
