Evaluation Hardware/Software User Manual for RGB
Sensor
Introduction
Reference Documents
The RGB Evaluation Kit is designed to evaluate the performance
of the RGB sensor. The kit is accompanied by a graphical user
interface (GUI) that contains the CIE 1931 Chromaticity
diagram with Planckian locus in an x, y- coordinate system,
with cross marks to point out where the RGB sensor position is
on the graph. The GUI facilitates evaluation of parameters
such as raw data of Red, Green and Blue as well as X, Y and Z
corrected lux measurements and also performs interrupt
functions. Data can be viewed on the GUI and/or saved to a
text file for future analysis. The GUI software is compatible
with Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, and Windows® 7. This
provides a simple user interface for exercising the device
features.
RGB Chroma Meter Setup
The system (MCU, DUT) is powered directly from the universal
serial bus (USB) or from a single-supply voltage of 2.25V to
3.6V. The evaluation board must be connected to a computer
through the mini USB port for the system to function. The
system uses a USB MCU to communicate to the DUT via
I2C/SMBus interface.

FIGURE 1. EVALUATION BOARD
Download the software from the link provided in the
“Reference Documents” section. Once the application is
downloaded from the website, double-click the file to start
installing the GUI. The user will be greeted by the screen shown
in Figure 2. Continue through the installer and read the
instructions. Figures 2 through 6 show the complete
installation process.
The USB Evaluation Board should always be connected via the
USB until the installation has been satisfactorily completed.

Running Program for the RGB GUI
A) USB Communication (Hardware) - Gather the required
materials and connect the PC to the ISL29125 by mini USB
cable as shown in Figure 7.
C) Once “ChromaMeter” is clicked, the window displayed in
Figure 9 should open; if it does not display cross-points in the
Chromaticity diagram on the right and numbers on the left
panel of GUI, then check your connections. If the problem still
persists, then you may want to restart the software. Figure 12
shows the error message that displays if the evaluation board
is improperly attached.
FIGURE 7. ISL29125 EVAL BOARD CONNECT TO PC BY MINI USB
Once the evaluation board is connected to the PC, D6, which
is next to mini USB socket at the bottom of evaluation board,
should light up. If the LED is not ON, please check your
connection.
B) Launching the RGB GUI - Once the installation is complete,
click “Finish” to launch the RGB GUI. If you wish to launch
from yur PC desktop, us the path shown in Figure 8. (Start 
Program Intersil RGB Chroma Meter  Chroma Meter.
FIGURE 9. CHROMA TEST GUI
D) Figure 9 shows an example using the ISL29125. Please not
that all demonstraions within this document use the
ISL29125.
A detailed explanation of the operating modes can be found
in the datasheet of the individual devices and Figure 10
details the GUI display.

to equal Y. CCT displays shows color temperature of light
source.

14. RMS noise of raw RGB values in %/value.
15. Card/DUT FSR: Full scale (in Lux) of the evaluation card and
the sensor (internal to the card).
16. Speed: Allows the user to select the number of ADC bits and
the speed of the conversion. Details shown in Figure 9.

FIGURE 10. GUI DISPLAY DETAILS
1. CCM: Allows user load new coefficients if they have a custom
system setup.
2. Run button: By default sensor will run continuously. When
pressed, data will be held at the last value.
3. Auto button: Auto ranges from range0 to range1 or once it is
toggled to “Fixed” Then sensor can do single range depending
on user selection.
4. Compensation: Scroll-bar allows user to set compensation
value for sensor under different light sources. Display window
shows compensation value. Range is between 0-127.
5. xy button: Shows Planckian locus graph in xy coordinate
system on the right hand side (colored graph) or, once it is
toggled, then uv-coordinates will be displayed (colored graph).
F) Once the evaluation board and GUI are operating, the
cross-points will start moving along the blackbody curve. By
changing the color temperature of the light-bulbs, the crosspoints will move along with that temperature. For example, if
the user uses CL-200 (color lux meter) to measure color
temperature and certain lux level of an illuminant (3200K)
then takes the CL-200 out and replaces with the evaluation
board, the cross-points and lux value on the GUI will be around
3200K of the black body curve and lux value will be matched
with the lux that is read at CL-200. The user can continue
testing the board by changing the color temperature bulb
(2800K to 6500K).
G) Exit the GUI by clicking the “X” button on the top right corner
of the GUI.
6. Selects between normal and maximum high sensitivity on the
low range only.
7. Enables 32 sample averaging.
8. Allows user to change absolute gain of corrected lux value to
match the Lux Meter (CL-200 or T-10). The absolute gain can
be changed to ±500%.
9. Raw data of Red, Green and Blue read from ISL29125 in
percentage of full scale per range.
10. dIR: percentage IR value changes relative to full scale from
compensation=0. The higher IR value in the display window
means sensor is under stronger IR-content lamp.
11. XYZ displays show corrected value Lux value which transfers
from raw RGB to XYZ. xy/uv displays show corrected xy/uv
coordinate system of sensor to Planckian locus.

1. If installer doesn’t complete, check the USB to make sure the
evaluation board is connected to the PC.
2. If the cross-point does not display to match with the color
temperature light bulb, the user needs to check x,y, and z
values at left GUI panel. If x,y and z are all -1, Color Correction
Matrix (CCM) did not load properly. The user should click on
the “CCM” button at top left corner in the GUI Panel. Another
pop-up window will display as shown in Figure 13.
3. To open the CCM Worksheet, go to the “Start” menu, (Start 
Intersil RGB Chroma Meter  Chroma Meter CCM
Worksheet). The CCM Worksheet contains the coefficient for
the specific evaluation board (Figure 8, but choose CCM
Worksheet Excel).
4. Once the CCM Excel Worksheet is opened, the user should
look for the worksheet number which is matched with his/her
evaluation board number.
5. User should copy the CCM, which is highlighted in Green color
“EEPromVersion3” then paste into item 14 shown in
Figure 13.
