Product Description

This is a breakout for the APDS-9200, a small ambient light and UV index sensor from Broadcom Limited.

The APDS-9200 is unique because it combines ambient light sensing along with UV sensing in the same tiny package. Users can connect to the device using the standard I2C protocol. We have developed a open-source software library (more updates to come) for communicating with the chip available for download on GitHub.

The breakout is extremely tiny, easily fitting in your portable projects. Back this project and reserve your APDS-9200 Breakout Board today.

Options and Add-Ons

LiPo Battery Breadboard Power Supply with Charging

$15.96

The LiPo Battery Breadboard Supply with Charging is a simple LiPo battery breakout that fits snuggly on a standard sized breadboard providing power to rails on both sides of the board. The breakout also includes a 3.3V, 300mA regulator in case the user would like to add a regulated supply to their design. Additionally, the breakout includes a micro USB connector and battery charger (MCP73831T) so that the user can power from a standard USB port and charge their LiPo battery at the same time. Furthermore, the breakout includes a number of indicator LEDs so the user can monitor the status of the LiPo battery and the regulated supply. The user can also turn the supply off by disconnecting the supply from the power rails and turning off the regulator without having to remove the breakout board from the breadboard or disconnecting the LiPo battery.

Please visit the product's Instructables page for a detailed description of the design.

How it works

This is a group buy campaign that needs to acquire at least the stated minimum amount of pledges from backers like you before the Unit Deliverable and any Add-Ons ship. We do not charge anyone until the Progress above hits 100% or greater, otherwise there is no charge. All campaign products are vetted as existing and functional so your order will be fulfilled within the Factory Lead Time if the campaign succeeds. Please see our FAQ page for more details on our billing process.
