Gesture Breakout with APDS-9960
Based on the RGB and Gesture APDS-9960 sensor, equipped with integrated anti-UV and IR filters, four separate diodes sensitive to different directions, and an I2C compatible interface, this small breakout board allows obtaining light and color measurements, proximity and motion detection without contact at a distance from 10 to 20 cm.
With this RGB and Gesture sensor, you will be able to control a computer, microcontroller, robot, and much more with a simple hand gesture!
The usage pins are as follows: VL (optional IR LED power supply), GND (Ground), VCC (3.3V power supply), SDA (I2C data), SCL (I2C clock), INT (interrupt).
Attention! The breakout operates at 3.3V. Bidirectional communication with 5V devices requires a level shifter.
- Power supply: 3.3 volts
- Interface: I2C
- Detection distance: 10-20 cm.
