TinyShield Ambient Light Sensor
See Projects

Measure light with your TinyDuino - this TinyShield features a TAOS TSL2572 Ambient Light Sensor, that approximates the human eye's response to light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials. Accurate ALS measurements are the result of TAOS’ patented dual-diode technology and the UV rejection filter incorporated in the package. In addition, the operating range is extended to 60,000 lux in sunlight when the low-gain mode is used.

The Ambient Light Sensor TinyShield incorporates level shifters and a local power supply to ensure proper and safe operation over the entire TinyDuino operating voltage range between 3 – 5V.
