This ambient light sensor using the phototransistor TEMT6000. The phototransistor is connected with a pull-down resistor to form a voltage divider that provides a voltage between 0 and + 5VDC proportional to the perceived light in the spectrum of visible light. Output voltage lower indicates a lower detected light. The low current consumption allows the sensor to be powered directly from the pin I/O microcontroller, allowing you to turn on and off the sensor through these lines, in order for saving number of connection.
