Ok, I just spent the past 45 minutes soldering thin gauge wire to the 3 pads on the temt6000 light sensor (SMD). Anyway, no need for me to post pictures :-). Let’s assume the wires are soldered just fine.
Looking for the temt6000 light sensor MODULE (which I should’ve bought instead of just the module) I can see that there is a resistor in there. Looking at the schematics I found its a 10K resistor:
Im gonna have to set this up on my breadboard for now with a traditional resistor. But I was just wondering about the connections. The sensor has an emitter and a collector that I need to connect. The collector comes from the Vcc side and the emitter goes to ground. The diagram shows the resistor in the GND side.
I just wanted to know why it would go on that side. I remember when working with LEDs that a R is also required and I remember reading once that it doesnt make a difference whether you put it on the + or - of the LED because as long as the R was in the circuit it would do its job.
