Mikroe Color 14 Click

Mikroe Color 14 Click features the Broadcom Limited APDS-9151 integrated RGB, ambient light sensing, IR LED, and a complete proximity detection system. The board is an I2C configurable color sensor. It uses four individual red, green, blue, and IR (RGB+IR) channels in a specially designed matrix arrangement. This allows optimal angular response and accurate RGB spectral response with high lux accuracy over various light sources. The proximity detection feature operates well from bright sunlight to dark rooms.
