Evaluation Kit for TCS3771
The TCS3771 Evaluation Kit comes with everything needed to evaluate the TCS3771 proximity and color sensor. The evaluation kit comprises of a main controller board with a PIC microcontroller, an industry standard USB 2.0 interface (with an USB cable), a TCS3471 daughter card, "plug-n-play" USB HID class drivers, software documentation, and GUI software allowing users to control the proximity and color sensor settings as the PIC takes the TCS3771 I2C digital outputs to calculate proximity, illuminance in lux and color temperature.
Please note that ams-OSRAM AG is discontinuing production of TCS3771.
TCS37717 Color Sensor
The TCS3771 family of devices provides red, green, blue, and clear (RGBC) light sensing and proximity detection (when coupled with an external IR LED). They detect light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials. The proximity detection feature allows a large dynamic range of operation for use in short distance detection behind dark glass such as in a cell phone or for longer distance measurements for applications such as presence detection for monitors or laptops. The programmable proximity detection enables continuous measurements across the entire range. In addition, an internal state machine provides the ability to put the device into a low power mode in between RGBC and proximity measurements providing very low average power consumption. This data is transferred via an I2C to the host.
