Your electronics can now see in dazzling color with this lovely color light sensor. We found the best color sensor on the market, the TCS34725, which has RGB and Clear light sensing elements. An IR blocking filter, integrated on-chip and localized to the color sensing photodiodes, minimizes the IR spectral component of the incoming light and allows color measurements to be made accurately. The filter means you'll get much truer color than most sensors, since humans don't see IR. The sensor also has an incredible 3,800,000:1 dynamic range with adjustable integration time and gain so it is suited for use behind darkened glass or fabric.

To make sure you get consistent color, we specified a nice neutral 4150°K temperature LED with a MOSFET driver onboard to illuminate what you're trying to sense. The LED can be easily turned on during sensing and turned off afterwards to save power.

Connect to a Flora via I2C and our example code will quickly get you going with 4 channel readings. A detailed tutorial is in the works, till then, 22:21)

Revision History:

  • As of Oct 16, 2020 - due to a shortage of white LEDs, we are making this board with the Wurth 158302250 which has equivalent color temperature, light spread and brightness.
