In this paper, we proposed ambient light sensor (ALS) and color temperature sensor (CTS) circuit integrated in the edge of LCD display panel. The designed circuit is based on the thin film transistor (TFT) technology, the photo TFT can produce high photo current under light for sensor realizing ambient light from 0~50000Lux. Also, CTS circuit are based on ALS circuit but covered with color filter. The result shows that CTS can discriminate different color temperature in ambient light. The biggest advantage of this sensor is that it is compatible with TFT process in manufacturing, and it is small in size and high in efficiency. It has the potential to replace photodiode sensors.
