Question Digiflight Controller?

Anyone know what the thing that looks like a photovoltaic chip or something on the front of the digiflight controller is for? I looked all through my documents and can't find any ref. to it.

It's the auto back light control for the display.

Wow, pretty hi-tech. I thought that it might be for that but I didn't know for sure. Thanks.

Walt is correct.
You can place your finger over it while powered and it will change. Some time during a 360 turn, it will change when the shade passes over it.
