SparkFun Grid-EYE Infrared Array Breakout - AMG8833 (Qwiic)

1 item left

Get ready to be able to see like the Predator! The SparkFun Grid-EYE Infrared Array Breakout board is an 8x8 thermopile array, meaning you have a square array of 64 pixels capable of independent temperature detection. It’s like having a thermal camera, just in a lower resolution. To make it even easier to to get your low-resolution infrared image, all communication is enacted exclusively via I2C, utilizing our handy Qwiic system. However, we still have broken out 0.1\"-spaced pins in case you prefer to use a breadboard.

The on-board AMG8833 Grid-EYE from Panasonic possesses an accuracy rate of ±2.5°C (±4.5°F) with a temperature range of 0°C to 80°C (32°F to 176°F). Additionally, this IR \"camera\" board can detect human body heat at about 7 meters or less (that\'s about 23 feet), and has a frame rate of 10 frames a second to one frame a second. It is important to point out that while this version of the Grid-EYE is the high performance type with a high gain, it is only 3.3V tolerant. IE: Don\'t try to operate it at 5V (you won\'t have a very good time).

**NOTE:** The I2C address of the AMG8833 is 0x69 and is jumper selectable to 0x68. A multiplexer/Mux is required to communicate to multiple AMG8833 sensors on a single bus. If you need to use more than one AMG8833 sensor consider using the [Qwiic Mux Breakout](https://www.sparkfun.com/products/16784).

*The SparkFun Qwiic connect system is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.*
