Qwiic UV Sensor (VEML6075) Hookup Guide
The VEML6075 is SparkFun's latest UV sensing solution. The VEML6075 implements a simple photodiode to measure the levels of UVA (320-400 nm) and UVB (280-320 nm) radiation. We can read the intensity of this light in irradiance, and from there, calculate the UV Index. The Qwiic UV Sensor has two spectrum ranges of measurement, UVA (365 ±10nm), and UVB. (330 ±10nm)
To get started, you'll need a microcontroller to control everything. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
Now to get into the Qwiic ecosystem, the key will be one of the following Qwiic shields to match your preference of microcontroller:
You will also need a Qwiic cable to connect the shield to your UV sensor, choose a length that suits your needs.
If you aren't familiar with the Qwiic system, we recommend reading here for an overview.
