This breakout board provides a convenient way to start using the popular AMG8833 Grid-EYE module, an 8×8 array of IR thermal sensor manufactured by Panasonic. The AMG8833 returns an array of 64 individual infrared temperature readings over I2C to your microcontroller (Arduino) or single-board computer (Raspberry Pi). It’s like those fancy thermal cameras, but compact and simple enough for easy integration.
This part will measure temperatures ranging from 0~80°C (32~176°F) with an accuracy of ±2.5°C (4.5°F). It can detect a human from a distance of up to 7 meters (23) feet. With a maximum frame rate of 10Hz, It’s perfect for creating your own human detector or mini thermal camera!
The AMG8833 is the next generation of 8×8 thermal IR sensors from Panasonic, and offers higher performance than its predecessor the AMG8831. The sensor only supports I2C, and has a configurable interrupt pin that can fire when any individual pixel goes above or below a user-set threshold.As usual, the 6-pin header is included, but soldering is required.
