App note: Ambient light sensors – General application note

Different ambient sensors differs on their ability to sense specific wavelength and introduce different ambient levels compared to human eye, here’s a general application note from OSRAM. Link here (PDF) This application note introduces discusses ambient light sensing. The different types of ambient light sensors are described and related to specific applications.

Ambient TV lighting, a low-power solution for creating ambient light based on a TV signal

Here’s an ambient TV lighting project by Shiva Rajagopal from Cornell University, built as a final project: Here’s a project I recently made for the ECE 5760 FPGA class at Cornell University. I have created a real-time system that can use an NTSC video signal to simulate the lighting effects of a TV in a […]
