Colour Sensor Module TSC230
Don't leave your next physical computing project stranded in a world of black and white! This color senor module can detect the color of an object and report it back to your processor for applications like color sorting.
The Color sensor module is based on TCS3200 which is a programmable color light-to-frequency converter, it can filter RGB data from source light and convert it to a square wave(50% duty cycle) with frequency directly proportional to light intensity (irradiance). The full-scale output frequency can be scaled by one of three preset values via two control input pins(SO, S1 Selectable Options 2%, 20%, 100% frequency),and pin S2, S3 control the filter of RGB. Digital inputs and digital output allow interface to a microcontroller or other logic circuitry directly. Output enable (OE) places the output in the high-impedance state for multiple-unit sharing of a microcontroller input line. At last, user can calculate the color of the light by RGB values.
