TCS3200 Colour Sensor

UGX 25,000


The TCS3200 programmable color light-to-frequency converter combines 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). The TCS3200 reads an 8x8 array of photodiodes.


  • Programmable color light-to-frequency converter
  • Output Enable (OE) pin
  • Output frequency scaling
  • Available in 5mm x 6.2mm SOIC (D) package


  • Enables high-resolution conversion of light intensity to frequency
  • Disables the output into a Hi-Impedance state when OE input pin is Low
  • Enables output range to be optimized for a variety of low-cost measurement techniques
  • Reduces board space requirements while simplifying designs
