The Ambient 2 Click Board™ carries TI's OPT3001 Ambient Light sensor. It's a small (2mm x 2mm) single-chip lux meter that measures only the visible part of the light spectrum from any kind of source (mimicking the way humans see light).

  • Based on the TI OPT3001 device
  • Measures the visible light spectrum
  • I2C communication interface
  • 0.01 lux to 83k lux range
  • 23-bit resolution
  • Approximates light perceived by human eye
  • 3.3V power supply
  • Automatic full-scale setting feature
  • Operating Temperature Range:
  • Wide Power-Supply Range: 1.6V to 3.6V
  • Flexible Interrupt System
  • Small-Form Factor: 2.0 mm
  • Supported by all mikroElektronika compilers

Product Details

IC/Module: OPT3001 Digital Ambient Light Sensor

OPT3001 is a visible light intensity measurement sensor. Its spectral response matches the photopic response of the human eye and deflects 99% of the infrared light, and thus, accurately measures intensity of light as visible by the human eye regardless of light source. It is highly suitable for systems that create light-based experiences for humans, and serves as a preferred replacement for photodiodes, photoresistors, or other ambient light sensors with less human eye matching and IR rejection feature.

Less Strain on Human Eye

Ambient 2 Click is capable to lessening eyestrain as the Click Board™s sensitivity to light matches with that of a human eye. It makes the board a great option for TFT display backlights, which fine-tunes brightness depending on the ambient light intensity.

Less Strain on the Microcontroller

Ambient 2 Click also reduces the strain on the microcontroller. The board has an INT pin, which aids in triggering wake-up events. So, the microcontroller doesn't constantly read off the data from the sensor.
