Built-in APDS-9960 sensor, providing ambient light and color measurement, proximity detection and non-contact gesture detection. With this RGB and gesture sensor, you can control a computer, a microcontroller, a robot, and it's much more powerful than a simple credit card with your hand! In fact, the gesture sensor APDS-9960 was used in the Samsung GalaxyS5.
The APDS-9960 is a serious little piece of hardware with built in UV and IR blocking filters, four separate diodes sensitive to different directions, and an I2C compatible interface. For your convenience we have broken out the following pins: VL (optional power to IR LED), GND (Ground), VCC (power to APDS-9960 sensor), SDA (I2C data), SCL (I2C clock), and INT (interrupt). Each APDS-9960 also has a detection range of 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 cm).
Can be applied to ambient light and RGB color sensor, close to detection, gesture detection.
Operating voltage: 3.3V
Measuring range: 4-8 in (10-20CM)
