SparkFun UV Sensor for Micro:Bit

The SparkFun gator:UV micro:bit Accessory Board is an ultraviolet sensing solution created to interface with the micro:bit as easily as possible. As part of SparkFun's gator:bit series of alligator-clippable accessories, it can be easily interfaced with the micro:bit or other microcontrollers via the SparkFun gator:bit! This sensor board is a great solution for monitoring the UV light exposure in your next experiment! The gator:UV is designed around the VEML6070, an advanced UV light sensor that communicates over an I2C bus, incorporating a photodiode, amplifiers, and analog/digital circuits all into a single chip.

The UV Light Sensor Breakout measures UVA (365 ±10nm) radiation and converts the ultraviolet light intensity into digital data for you to read.
