new in my #Tindie shop: Light detector, 5V, based on photodiode and opamp -- 5V daylight intensity sensor, for direct connection to AD converter of microcontroller https://www.tindie.com/products/offerman/light-detector-5v-based-on-photodiode-and-opamp/ "A modern alternative to the traditional voltage divider circuits based on photoresistors (i.e. LDR's containing cadmium). Photodiodes provide only a small current when light is falling onto the silicon, so they need an operational amplifier before the output can be delivered to an AD converter for readout."
got it all sorted now, turning this circuit into a neat little SMD module 😎
have been fiddling with a BPW34 photo diode and a TLC271ACP opamp to create an ambient light sensor that can be connected directly to the AD converter of an MCU https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/618564/measuring-ambient-light-intensity-using-bpw34-photodiode-and-tlc271acp-opamp/
had a color chart printed (on brushed aluminum #Dibond) to find a good palette for my world time zone map
