How to Use

In the case of working with a MCU:

  • VCC ↔ 2.7V ~ 5.5V
  • GND ↔ power supply ground
  • LED ↔ MCU.IO (controlling the 4 white LEDs)
  • OUT ↔ MCU.IO (RGB color output frequency)
  • S0/S1 ↔ MCU.IO (Output frequency scaling selection inputs)
  • S2/S3 ↔ MCU.IO (Photodiode type selection inputs)

Customer Reviews

Great price, good form factor

This sensor works. Don't expect it to be a super-accurate sensor. You select one color (R, G, or B) or white and it gives you back a value corresponding to the amount of that light hitting the sensor. You can cycle through the different colors fairly quickly if you want to read R, G, and B separately. Some other sensors have a bezel around the sensor to block side light, and on this sensor it's notably missing.
