Ambient Light Sensor - VEML7700 (Qwiic)


Looking for a Qwiic sensor that can measure the ambient light level directly in lux? This is it!

The VEML7700 is a high accuracy, 16-bit resolution, digital ambient light sensor in a miniature transparent 6.8 mm x 3.0 mm x 2.5 mm package. It includes a high sensitivity photodiode, a low noise amplifier, a 16-bit A/D converter and supports an easy to use I2C bus communication interface.

  • FiltronTM technology adaption: close to real human eye response
  • O-TrimTM technology adoption: ALS output tolerance ≤ 10 %
  • 16-bit dynamic range for ambient light detection from 0 lx to about 167 klx with resolution down to 0.005 lx/count
  • 100 Hz and 120 Hz flicker noise rejection
  • Excellent temperature compensation
  • High dynamic detection resolution
  • Software shutdown mode control
  • High and low threshold windows with interrupt flags

Our Arduino Library converts the raw sensor data into lux, automatically compensating for the sensor's gain and integration time settings.

Kit include:

As usual, our breakout board includes:

Two Qwiic connectors

I2C breakout pins

I2C pull-up resistors (configurable)

Power LED (configurable)
