Basically, TCS230  Color Recognition Sensor Module is designed to detect the colors. It has an array of photodiode 8×8 matrix. Four type of filters are covering these diodes. The TCS230 converts the intensity of incident radiation into frequency. The output waveform is 50% duty cycle square wave. Hence, you can use the timer from the MCU to measure period of pulse and get the color frequency. Also, the output of TCS230 is available in single line. Accordingly, you well get the intensity of RED, GREEN, BLUE and Clear channels.
