Grove Color Sensor


I just received the Grove color sensor boards I ordered ( … th=144_148 ).
Now I am wondering if I can use them on the 5V serial interface of my Arduino Mega 2560 directly. The datasheet of the TCS3414CS sensor chip states it takes 3.6V at maximum. So, does the color sensor board allow for 5V on the serial line?


Well, since U2 on the board is a voltage regulator for conversion to 3.3 volts I feel confident enough to try…
