The TCS230 programmable color light-to-frequency converter combines configurable silicon photodiodes and a 
current-to-frequency converter on a single monolithic CMOS integrated circuit. The output is a square wave 
(50% duty cycle) and frequency directly proportional to light intensity (irradiance). The full-scale ouput 
frequency can be scaled by one of three preset values via two control input pins. Click here for datasheet. Click here for application notes.
