 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I want to get an arduino board that is interfaced with a photodiode?
I want it to generate a data output of intensity with respect to time on a SD card .

I have searched the web, but didn't find it. I would prefer to have the arduino board programmed in advance.

Please Help its for a final year project!!

Photodiodes are very low level devices that require amplification before being useful as a analog input for an arduino. See if any of the example circuits in the below document might be appropriate to what you wish to do.
