Ambient 2 Click Board
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).

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.
