Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Ben - Fast response, good price verified purchaser

    A search didn't reveal and good examples of Arduino projects using these, but they worked out fine.

    We connected these as a voltage divider (with a 100k resistor) to an Arduino's analog pin, giving about 2.3v in bright light. The quick linear response and 12 bit sensitivity on the Arduino meant that these worked great in our night light project.

    They see a bit of light through the back of the component, but probably not an issue for most mounting arrangements. (Posted on 19/09/2014)
