This TinyShield features a TAOS TSL2572 Ambient Light Sensor, that approximates human eye response to light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials. Accurate ALS measurements are the result of TAOS’ patented dual-diode technology and the UV rejection filter incorporated in the package. In addition, the operating range is extended to 60,000 lux in sunlight when the low-gain mode is used.

The Ambient Light Sensor TinyShield incorporates level shifters and a local power supply to ensure proper and safe operation over the entire TinyDuino operating voltage range between 3 – 5V.

You can also use this shield without the TinyDuino – there are 0.1″ spaced holes for power, ground, and the two I2C signals along the side of the TinyShield to allow you to connect a different system.
