Color Detector Sensor
General Pin Out Sensor / Trinket's Pin Out
PIN1 (GND) GND
PIN2 (VCC) VCC
PIN3 (SIGNAL-A) IIC SDA
PIN4 (SIGNAL-B) IIC SCL
  • General Pin Out is the standard pin out of a Sensor / Trinket connector.
  • Sensor / Trinket's Pin Out is this specific Sensor / Trinket's wiring in relation to the General Pin Out.
  • SIGNAL-A / SIGNAL-B are signals that could be digital input, digital output, analog input or analog output. Or special signals such as serial communication (SoftwareSerial, IIC (I2C), etc) or other special signals.
  • Not Connected refers to the Pin not being used for this particular Sensor / Trinket.
