Units – Color Sensor RGB TCS34725 Unit



Description


COLOR is a Color Light-to-Digital Converter with IR Filter. TCS3472 device provides a digital return of red, green, blue(RGB), and clear light sensing values. 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.

In order to get better result, you can try to blacking the sunken area on the side with marker pen.

This Unit communicates with the M5Core via the GROVE PORTA (I2C). Address is 0x29.
