Solutions Cubed BM017 I2C Colour Sensor
This is an easy to use and powerful colour sensor. The sensor converts filtered light digital values for red, green, blue, and clear colours. It can be used for sorting, colour detection, or with an RGB LED for colour reproduction.
The BM017 module carries one AMS TCS34725 colour light-to-digital converter IC. The IC has an I2C interface allowing digital systems to measure object colour. Red, blue, green, and clear values may be read. The module also has a white LED and MOSFET that may be used to illuminate objects. Voltage level translation circuitry is included allowing the module to interface to 3V or 5V logic systems. A 3.3V linear regulator on the module provides power to the colour sensor. Module documentation and application info are available to get you started right away. This is open source hardware, all design files are available.
