Arduino -> Color Sensor Wiring:
  • 5v -> VIN
  • GND -> GND
  • SDA -> SDA
  • SCL -> SCL

Note: On older Arduinos such as the Duemilanove and pre R3 UNOs, SDA is on Analog 4 and SCL is on Analog 5. On pre-R2 Megas, SDA is on Digtital 20 and SCL is on digital 21. For the Leonardo, SDA is digital pin 2 and SCL is digital pin 3.

Raspberry Pi -> Color Sensor Wiring:

  • Pi 3V3 to sensor VIN
  • Pi GND to sensor GND
  • Pi SCL to sensor SCL
  • Pi SDA to sensor SDA
