Color sensor S9706

Datasheet [1 MB/PDF]

The S9706 is a digital color sensor sensitive to red (λ=615 nm), green (λ=540 nm)、blue(λ=465 nm) regions of the spectrum. Detected signals are serially output as 12-bit digital data. Built-in three 12-bit registers allow simultaneous measurement of RGB three colors. Sensitivity level is adjustable in two steps to cover a wide photometric range.

-12-bit digital output
-Simultaneous measurement of RGB three colors
-2-step sensitivity switching (sensitivity ratio of 1:9)
-Low voltage (3.3V) operation
-CMOS monolithic photo IC
-No external components required
