Fast response time, high photo sensitivity and small junction capacitance Spectrally matched to visible and infrared light SPI communication interface or direct analog output Supports 3.3V and 5V systems
This add-on board has a PD15-22C/TR8 PIN photodiode, providing an effective and easy way to measure ambient light intensity. It also features a MAX6106 voltage reference and an MCP3201 ADC with SPI interface. The PD15-22C/TR8 is a high photosensitive light sensor with a fast response time. Measured ambient light intensity is sent as an analog or digital signal to the main board microcontroller.
Light Click communicates through mikroBUS SPI (MISO, SCK, CS) or AN lines, selectable via an SMD jumper (in SPI/ADC position by default). Another SMD jumper allows you to select whether the board will be powered with 3.3V or 5V power supply (in 3.3V position by default).
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, these mikromedia shields, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
