he TAOS TCS230 sensor is a complete color detector, including the TAOS TCS230 RGB chip
It can detect and measure a nearly limitless range of visible colors.
Among the applications include sorting by color, use as ambient light sensor or calibration and color adjustment ...
TCS230 TAOS sensor has an array of photodiodes, each with a color filter of red, green or blue, or unfiltered.
Each color filters are evenly distributed throughout the matrix to remove the bias location between colors.
As the output signal produces a square wave whose frequency is proportional to the intensity of the selected color.
Converts the light intensity at a frequency with high resolution.
It communicates directly with a microcontroller.
No need external capacitor. .
Temperature range of -40 C to 85 C.
Supply Voltage: 2.7 V to 3.6 V.
