Product Overview

The TEPT5600DEVKIT ambient light sensor development kit allows developers to quickly and easily evaluate any of ambient light sensors. The development kit includes an adapter board and sensor board. The sensor board includes the ambient light sensor chosen to be evaluated by the customer, an analog to digital converter, and I2C interface. The adapter board converts the I2C output from the sensor board to the RS232 interface for direct PC connection. With the direct PC connection, development engineers can use the sensor and adapter board combination to quickly define system responses to various lighting conditions. To reduce prototype development time and cost, engineers can integrate the sensor board, connecting the I2C interface directly to their products controller. The ambient light sensors help reduce power consumption in consumer electronics applications by controlling keypad backlights and adjusting the brightness of LCDs.
