The evaluation module from Texas Advanced Optoelectronic Solutions (TAOS) Inc. enables designers to quickly and easily evaluate the company's TCS230 programmable color light-to-frequency converter. The device consists of a lens module with white LED illuminator, a Parallax Board of Education (BOE) module and programmed BASIC Stamp, and a PC host software.

The BASIC Stamp of the TCS230EVM provides the interface between the TCS230 output and the PC serial port. The Windows software displays the output values from the device, and allows the user to view the color detected by the module in both RGB and HSV (hue, saturation, and value) color space.

The TCS230 integrates red, green and blue filters on a single die, and enables 10- to 12-bits or better resolution per color channel without the need for expensive ADC converters. The TCS230EVM is available for $150 plus shipping and handling costs.
