Tibbit #28: Ambient Light Sensor, C1 US$13.00

TIBBIT_28
Tibbit #28: Ambient Light Sensor, C1


This is a Tibbit module part of the Tibbo Project System that allows you to build your own custom embedded device with only the components you need. Start with a Tibbo Project PCB, add Tibbits like this one, then place the built design into a Tibbo Project Box to complete your product.


Tibbit #28: Visible spectrum ambient light sensor.

This Tibbit contains a BH1721FVC ambient light sensor with I2C interface. The sensor is implemented as the C1 device with a clear (transparent) window. The module measures the light intensity of the surrounding environment. Its spectral response is close to that of a human eye.

The module's ambient light measurement output is as 16-bit values that do not correspond to any standard measurement units.

This C1 device requires that Tibbit #00-3 is installed in the neighboring M socket. #00-3 provides two direct lines for I2C comms, as well as the ground and +5V power for the BH1721FVC IC.

  • Form: C1
  • Power: 5V consumes 2mA

Sample Project

The use of this and other I2C Tibbits is illustrated by a group of Tibbo BASIC test projects.

C1 Tibbit Modules Overview

C1 Tibbits are single-width "connectors" occupying one standard C socket on a Tibbo Project PCB (i.e. TPP2 or TPP3). They have roughly the same width and height as M1T devices: 17.4mm wide usually and 17.5mm high. Their depth varies depending on the type of connector.

Some C1 Tibbits are just connectors such as a power jack, terminal block, etc. Others "sense" the outside world: temperature, humidity, vibration, IR, etc.

C1 Tibbits have a single row of 4 pins. All four pins are I/O lines that connect directly to four I/O lines of the adjacent M1 socket.

There are no dedicated ground and power pins. Many C1 Tibbits don't need ground and power anyway; they house connectors and nothing else.

If an attached external device needs ground and/or power, then these must come from the adjacent M Tibbit. Ground and power are also necessary for "sensor" C1 Tibbits.
