The ordering part number is JMBADGE2008-B which implies a Rev B board. Is a Rev C board actually shipped?
The ambient light sensor (ALS) we used is an Avago APDS-9002. The datasheet can be found here: http://www.avagotech.com/docs/5989-3051EN.
The RevD boards come programmed with a couple of applications. One is a Windows7 sensor application that does make use of the ALS. The source is available on the DVD and also on the link that JWW posted. Have a look at als.c/h and the source in the "Microsoft" folder.
This is a bit confusing. The -B is just an order code difference for our tracking.
The actual board rev is a Rev D. This is the latest design and includes an ambient light sensor and support for using Windows 7 sensor development.
The latest product page with order ability is:
The schematics are on the download tab and you can see the rev D in the title block.
Hope this helps
Thank-you. Yes, I figured the ordering code wasn't updated each rev but wanted to double-check.
I didn't see the ambient light sensor part number mentioned on that web page. I'd like to checkout the datasheet. Is there a sample app/code with the Rev D board that uses the ambient light sensor?
