Colour Detection Using TCS3200 Colour Sensor and LinkIt One Board

Intro: Colour Detection Using TCS3200 Colour Sensor and LinkIt One Board

In this Instructable,We will learn how to interface TCS3200 colour sensor with LinkIt One for Colour Detection.

The TCS3200 programmable color light-to-frequency converters that combine configurable silicon photodiodes and a current-to-frequency converter on a single monolithic CMOS integrated circuit. The output is a square wave (50% duty cycle) with frequency directly proportional to light intensity (irradiance).

Step 1: Requirements

1.Mediatek LinkIt One Board

2.TCS3200 Colour Sensor

Step 2: Connections

TCS3200 Colour sensor pins to LinkIt One Board

S0 = D8

S1 = D9

S2 = D12

S3 = D11

Out = D10

OE(Enable Pin-Active Low)=GND


Step 3: Compiling the Code

Upload the code on the LinkIt One board and Run it.

You have now successfully Interfaced TCS3200 Colour Sensor with LinkIt One board and will be able to detect desired colour.

Thanks for watching It.

    Question 7 months ago on Introduction

    I am trying to do this color sensor project using ARM LPC1769. Is it possible to use TCS 3200 with ARM?
