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
We add supporting circuitry as well, such as a 3.3V regulator so you
can power the breakout with 3-5VDC safely and level shifting for the
I2C pins so they can be used with 3.3V or 5V logic. Finally, we
specified a nice neutral 4150K temperature LED with a MOSFET driver
onboard to illuminate what you're trying to sense. The LED can be
easily turned on or off by any logic level output.
Connect to any microcontroller with I2C and our example code will
quickly get you going with 4 channel readings. We include some example
code to detect light lux and temperature that we snagged from the eval
A detailed tutorial is here, check out our Arduino library and follow
our tutorial to install. Wire up the sensor by connecting VDD to
3-5VDC, Ground to common ground, SCL to I2C Clock and SDA to I2C Data
on your Arduino. Restart the IDE and select the example sketch and
start putting all your favorite fruit next to the sensor element!
