I2C interface-compatible color sensor
The S11059-02DT/-03DS is a digital color sensor that supports the I2C (inter-integrated circuit) interface. It is sensitive to
red (λ=615 nm), green (λ=530 nm), blue (λ=460 nm), and infrared (λ=855 nm) light, and outputs detected results as 16-
bit digital data for each color. The photodiode for each color is automatically switched sequentially to perform measurements.
The sensitivity and integration time can be adjusted so that light measurements can be performed over a wide range.

*1: When there is a temperature difference between a product and the surrounding area in high humidity environment, dew
condensation may occur on the product surface. Dew condensation on the product may cause deterioration in characteristics and
*2: Moisture absorption and reﬂow conditions: JEDEC J-STD-020D LEVEL5a
Note: Exceeding the absolute maximum ratings even momentarily may cause a drop in product quality. Always be sure to use the
product within the absolute maximum ratings.
Recommended operating conditions
