Build Status

A Python library for accessing the VEML6070 digital UV light sensor from Vishay via python-smbus using the I2C interface.

Default settings are suitable for Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 and was successfully tested using a breakout.

I created this Python library in style of e.g. python-tsl2591 (of the TSL2591 light sensor) since I found either python code broken for my hardware or code targeted at Arduino.

Usage

Consult the data sheet and see demo.py for clues how to use this library.

Not all functions of the chip are supported, especially not the interrupt handling since I had no use for this. Please send pull requests for improvements and bug fixes!
