Product Description

Panasonic Grid-EYE is an 8x8 (64) pixel infrared( thermal ) array / camera sensor. This sensor offers digital output (I2C) for thermal presence, direction, and temperature values. The built-in lens includes a 60 degree viewing angle. Grid-EYE features compact SMD design using MEMS thermopile technology.

Applications for this sensor can include: digital signage, security, lighting control, kiosk / ATM, medical imaging, automatic doors, thermal mapping, people counting, robotics, and others.

What makes it special?

Breakout Board features
* Uses the AMG8833 part.
* Pinout compatible with Arduino Zero and other 3.3V Arduino compatible Pinout , such as the ST NUCLEO $12 boards.
* Direct Pass through of the I2C lines, INT.
* On board regulator handles Voltage Input of 3-5 V
* Optional ON/OFF power control through the PCB edge connectors for low power applications.
* Compatible with PUREmodules and the Modular Sensor Architecture

Why GroupGet?

There is no simple to integrate breakout board for the Grid-EYE. The only things you can get have micro-controllers attached to them. There is nothing to let you talk easily to the sensor directly. Also by Group buying through groupgets you are saving $30 off from the MSRP price of $79.

    Are there any Arduino libraries for this? What kind of processing power is needed for it?

    Please note that we've lowered the MoQ on this campaign from 100 to 25. Pure can now bundle this with a larger order.

    Would it be possible to populate it with the newer sensors instead of this old one? The SNR Is a lot better! (Eg AMG 8853, AMG 8854)
