Introduction

In this tutorial we will use the Adafruit TSL2561 sensor to measure LUX with Arduino.

The TSL2561 luminosity sensor is an advanced digital light sensor, ideal for use in a wide range of light situations. Compared to low cost CdS cells, this sensor is more precise, allowing for exact lux calculations and can be configured for different gain/timing ranges to detect light ranges from up to 0.1 – 40,000+ Lux on the fly.

Introduction

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Adafruit Pro Trinket board and how you can easily program it with Codebender!

This tiny board is using the ATmega328p microcontroller, it’s like an Arduino Pro Mini but with more pins and micro build-in USB port. The ATmega328p chip can also be found on Arduino uno board!

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Adafruit Flora board and how you can easily program it with Codebender!

FLORA is Adafruit’s fully-featured wearable electronics platform. It’s a round, sewable, Arduino-compatible microcontroller designed to empower amazing wearables projects. The FLORA family also has the best stainless steel threads, sensors, GPS modules and chainable LED NeoPixels, all are wearable!
