Need to autonomously monitor for that specific color value? Want to hone in on that magenta ball? Or follow that aquamarine line? The BH1749NUC-based Qwiic RGB Sensor is here for all of your red, green, blue, and infrared color-sensing needs.
The BH1749NUC features an I2C interface and a programmable interrupt output. It senses red, green, blue, and infrared in its field-of-view, then reports each channel as a 16-bit value. Additionally, it features programmable IR and RGB gains and a variable measurement rate.
Also included on the breakout are individually-controllable white, red, green, and blue LEDs. The LEDs are managed with a PCA9536 4-channel I/O expander. The paired LEDs and I/O expander allow you to customize illumination on your objects of interest with a simple I2C interface – no extra GPIO-control required!
The Qwiic RGB Sensor uses our simple Qwiic interface, so it requires no voltage translation and no figuring out which pin is SDA or SCL; just plug it in and go! As with any Qwiic board, this product includes a pair of Qwiic connectors to support a chain of multiple sensors.
