Description

A really sophisticated and accurate colour and luminance sensor breakout that's Raspberry Pi and Arduino-compatible. As well as detecting RGB colour and light level, it has added bells and whistles like 50/60Hz light noise rejection, a wide detection range, and two illumination LEDs. This type of sensor is the same as you'd find in phones, tablets, and laptops where they're used to detect ambient light temperature and adjust the colour temperature of the display accordingly. The BH1745 Luminance and Colour Sensor Breakout has an I2C interface and is 3.3V or 5V compatible.

Notes: The trace between the solder pads (marked ADDR) can be cut (carefully with a craft knife) to change the I2C address from the default of 0x38 to 0x39, meaning that you can use up to two sensors on the same Raspberry Pi or Arduino. If cut, the pads can be bridged again by soldering to reset the address to 0x38.
