With the TCS230EVM evaluation module, designers can easily evaluate the TCS230 programmable color light-to-frequency converter. The module takes on colorimeter applications, such as color printers and color monitor calibration. It consists of a lens module with a white LED illuminator, a Parallax Board of Education (BOE) module and programmed Basic stamp, and PC host software. The Windows software displays the RGB output values from the TCS230 and lets users view the color detected by the module in both RGB and HSV (hue, saturation, and value) color space. The TCS230EVM costs about $150.
