Key Features:

  • Add basic gesture sensing, RGB color sensing, proximity sensing, or ambient light sensing to your project
  • Integrated IR LED and driver, along with four directional photodiodes sense reflected IR energy from the LED
  • Measure the distance an object is from the front of the sensor (up to a few centimeters) with 8-bit resolution
  • Detects simple gestures (left to right, right to left, up to down, down to up are currently supported)

This breakout is chock full o' sensors! Add basic gesture sensing, RGB color sensing, proximity sensing, or ambient light sensing to your project with the Adafruit APDS9960 Proximity, Light, RGB, and Gesture Sensor. When connected to your microcontroller (running our library code) it can detect simple gestures (left to right, right to left, up to down, down to up are currently supported), return the amount of red, blue, green, and clear light, or return how close an object is to the front of the sensor. This device uses an I2C interface so it's easy to wire up and use.

The APDS9960 from Avago Technologies has an integrated IR LED and driver, along with four directional photodiodes that sense reflected IR energy from the LED. Its proximity detection feature allows it to measure the distance an object is from the front of the sensor (up to a few centimeters) with 8-bit resolution.

For your convenience, Adafruit placed the sensor on a PCB with a 3.3V regulator and some level shifting so it can be easily used with your favorite 3.3V or 5V microcontroller. SparkFun qwiic compatible STEMMA QT connectors are built - in for the I2C bus so you don't even need to solder! Just wire up to your favorite microcontroller or computer with a plug-and-play QT cable to light/color/proximity data ASAP.
