Manufactured by AMS-TAOS USA Inc., the TSL2571 is a light-to-digital device with
- on-chip photodiodes,
- integrating amplifiers,
- a state machine, and
- a 400 kHz I2C interface.
It provides ambient light sensing (ALS) that approximates human eye response to light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials.
The TSL2571 is ideal for managing power consumption of display and keyboard backlighting by providing the host computer ambient lighting data, and allowing power to be rationed where it is needed most, greatly prolonging battery life.
This Mini Module includes on-board power regulation and PCA9306 I2C level-shifting circuitry to adapt to our 5V I2C standard.
This is a general purpose I²C device compatible with all computing platforms and IoT technologies, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Particle, BridgeX5, and many more. All ControlEverything.com devices support a strict +5V I²C Bus standard.

Our mini modules provide a standardized footprint to simplify the design of your project, and allow for a smaller form factor without sacrificing the plug-and-play ease of use that our product line affords.
All I²C Mini Modules are designed to operate at 5VDC. Using a convenient quick connect 4-Pin plug, devices can be daisy-chained onto the I²C Bus, eliminating the need for soldering. Simply plug together the devices you need for your next automation application.
Pull-up resistors are included with all ControlEverything.com master devices. If you are wiring in your own I²C port, on-board 4.7K jumper-selectable pull-up resistors are available for convenience purposes.
All mini modules are 50.8 x 31.75 mm.
