Reference Design of Digilent Pmod ALS

This is a reference design of Digilent Pmod ALS,RS Part Number: (134-6463) . The Digilent Pmod ALS was converted into DesignSpark PCB format. Download link to the project files and the article of Digilent Pmod ALS can be found at the end.

The Digilent Pmod ALS (Revision A) demonstrates light-to-digital sensing through a single ambient light sensor. Digilent Engineers designed this Pmod around the Texas Instruments ADC081S021 analogue-to-digital converter and Vishay Semiconductor's TEMT6000X01.

  • Simple ambient light sensor
  • Convert light to digital data with 8-bit resolution
