We just received the first assembled sensor 06 (UV) boards and will begin mounting these to the main AmbaSat-1 board and testing shortly.

Sensor 06 is AmbaSat-1’s UV Sensor – The Si1132 is a low-power, ultraviolet (UV) index, and ambient light sensor with I2C digital interface and programmable-event interrupt output. This sensor IC includes an analog-to-digital converter, integrated high sensitivity visible and infrared photodiodes, and digital signal processor.

The Si1132 offers excellent performance under a wide dynamic range and a variety of light sources including direct sunlight.
