Sensors in Breakouts, Boards & Electronics

Breakouts add handy functions to your microcontroller, be it a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or something else. They tend to be dedicated to just one or a couple of functions, like audio output, motor driving, or sensors, but can be built up into larger projects.

Adafruit VEML6075 UVA UVB and UV Index Sensor Breakout

This little sensor is a great way to add UVA and UVB light sensing to any microcontroller project. The VEML6075 from Vishay has both true UVA and UVB band light sensors and an I2C-controlled ADC that will take readings and integrate them. The sensor also comes with calibration registers so you can easily convert the UVA/UVB readings into the UV Index. Read more...
