I'm looking at purchasing a Digital color sensor from Hamamatsu and the datasheet found here - http://sales.hamamatsu.com/en/products/solid-state-division/color_sensors/part-s9706.php, http://sales.hamamatsu.com/assets/pdf/parts_S/s9706_kpic1060e08.pdf says that it outputs 12bit Digital data. Can I read this into the arduino? Would I read it from the analog in pins or one of the digital pins? Any help appreciated. Thanks, Tim

Should be able to. You'll need at least three digital pins (Gate, CK (both output) and Din (input)), four if you need to set the range dynamically. You can use analogue pins, but set them up to read/write digitally.
Thanks very much for the response.
I'll order these in a week or two and write any progress I have with them! Would like to post a tutorial or something to the playground if I get the chance!
