TCS3200 RGB Color Sensor For Arduino is a complete color detector, including a TCS3200 RGB sensor chip and 4 white LEDs. The TCS3200 can detect and measure a nearly limitless range of visible colors. 

The TCS3200 RGB Color Sensor For Arduino has an array of photodetectors, each with either a red, green, or blue filter, or no filter (clear). The filters of each color are distributed evenly throughout the array to eliminate location bias among the colors. Internal to the device is an oscillator that produces a square-wave output whose frequency is proportional to the intensity of the chosen color.

The TCS3200 color sensor can detect a wide variety of colors based on their wavelength.
