Description Links Attachments

With the SparkFun Grid-EYE Infrared Array Breakout board, you can now experience temperature detection like never before. This board features an 8x8 thermopile array, providing you with a square array of 64 pixels, each capable of independent temperature detection. It's essentially a thermal camera but with a lower resolution. The board communicates exclusively via I2C, utilizing the convenient Qwiic system. However, for those who prefer using a breadboard, 2.54mm-spaced pins are also available.

The incorporated AMG8833 Grid-EYE from Panasonic offers an impressive accuracy rate of ±2.5°C within a temperature range of 0°C to 80°C. This infrared "camera" board can detect human body heat up to approximately 7 meters away, and provides a frame rate of 10 frames a second to one frame a second. Please note that while this version of the Grid-EYE is the high-performance type with high gain, it is only compatible with 3.3V. Operating it at 5V is not recommended.

The I2C address of the AMG8833 is 0x69 and can be selected to 0x68 via a jumper. To communicate with multiple AMG8833 sensors on a single bus, a multiplexer/Mux is required. For more than one AMG8833 sensor, consider using the Qwiic Mux Breakout.

The SparkFun Qwiic connect system is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables designed to make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, which not only saves PCB space but also ensures correct connections due to its polarized design.
