Ambient 6 click can sense the intensity of the ambient light, providing the measurement data in a digital format over the I2C interface. Packed in a small transparent casing, the VEML7700 IC used on this Click board™ is a perfect solution for the development of light sensing applications. Thanks to the O-Trim™ and Filtron™ technologies, it can sense light the way the human eye senses it, while maintaining a high accuracy under various conditions.
With only 6 configuration registers, it is very easy to program this device. However, like all our Click boards™, it is supported by the mikroSDK compatible set of functions, which simplify the development even further, providing code portability across different architectures.
The VEML7700 IC features a programmable dynamic range, interrupt detection when the ALS measurement exceeds programmable threshold window, programmable persistance, a 16-bit resolution, and low power consumption. These features make Ambient 6 click a perfect solution for the development of various applications, including:
- Light activated switches
- Backlight dimming for mobile and handheld devices
- Light metering
- Other similar light sensing aplications
