The module uses a common original ML8511 UV sensor that can detect the indoor or outdoor UV density.
Sensor IC uses a readily highly integrated SOI-CMOS technology, suitable for digital and analog circuits.
By the principle of turning photocurrent into voltage to detect UV intensity, it's suitable to be used by an external circuit.
Analog voltage can be output when ML8511 is proportional to UV light.
Since the voltage can be output, it can be directly connected to the built-in MCU's A / D digital / analog converter, no need for photoelectric conversion circuit.
With the use of small, thin surface package, it's suitable for portable devices.
The module also has a power saving mode up to 0.1uA, suitable for smart wearable devices or mobile phones to use.
