The Color sensor module base on TCS3200 which is a programmable color light-to-frequency converter, it could filter RGB data from source light and convert it to a square wave(50% duty cycle) with frequency directly proportional to light intensity (irradiance).

The full-scale output frequency can be scaled by one of three preset values via two control input pins(SO, S1 Selectable Options 2%, 20%, 100% frequency),and pin S2, S3 control the filter of RGB. Digital inputs and digital output allow interface to a microcontroller or other logic circuitry directly. Output enable (OE) places the output in the high-impedance state for multiple-unit sharing of a microcontroller input line. At last, user ​​can calculate the color of the light by RGB values.

*High-Resolution Conversion of Light Intensity to Frequency
*Programmable Color and Full-Scale Output Frequency
*Communicates Directly With a Microcontroller
*Single-Supply Operation (2.7 V to 5.5 V)
*Power Down Feature
*Nonlinearity Error Typically 0.2% at 50 kHz
*Stable 200 ppm/°C Temperature Coefficient
*Low-Profile Surface-Mount Package
