MIKROE-1438 Color Click™ Board

MikroElektronika presents a compact and easy plug-and-play solution for color sensing

Image of Mikroelektronika Color Click BoardMikroElektronika’s MIKROE-1438 Color Click board is a compact and easy plug-and-play solution for adding color sensing to designs. It features the ams TCS3471 color light sensor as well as an RGB LED diode. The TCS3471 features red, green, blue, and clear light sensing (RGBC) that detects light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials. RGB LED is provided to help illuminate objects if no other light source is available. Color Click communicates with the target board microcontroller via MikroBUS I²C (SDA, SCL) and INT lines. The board is designed to use 3.3 V power supply only.

The ams TCS3471 family of devices provides red, green, blue, and clear light sensing (RGBC) that detects light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials. An internal state machine provides the ability to put the device into a low-power mode between RGBC measurements providing very low average power consumption. The TCS3471 is useful in lighting conditions containing minimal IR content such as LED RGB backlight control, reflected LED color samplers, or fluorescent light color temperature detectors. With the addition of an IR blocking filter, the device is an excellent ambient light sensor, color temperature monitor, and general purpose color sensor.
