BH1749: Ambient Light Sensor IC


This sample application sets up the BH1749 color sensor to provide 8-bit measurement data every time a set threshold value (>50) is reached for the RED color channel. It also shows how to enable interrupt every time data is ready, instead of threshold trigging.


Building and Running

This project outputs sensor data to the console. It requires a BH1749 sensor. It should work with any platform featuring a I2C peripheral interface. It does not work on QEMU. In this example below the PCA20035 board is used.

This sample can be found under samples/sensor/bh1749 in the nRF Connect SDK folder structure.

See Building and programming a sample application for information about how to build and program the application.
