Mfr. Part #
Product Description

The Panasonic "Grid-EYE" is an 8x8 pixel thermal infrared camera core with a digital I2C output for thermal presence, direction, and temperature values. The built-in lens includes a 60˚ viewing angle. The package is a 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.

Breakout Board Features
* Panasonic AMG8833 Sensor
* Pinout compatible with Arduino Zero and other 3.3V Arduino compatible pinouts such as the ST NUCLEO
* Direct Pass through of the I2C lines and 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 way to integrate the Grid-EYE because existing solutions have microcontrollers already attached to them. There is nothing to let one interface Grid-EYE directly to a platform of choice. Also by group buying through groupgets you are saving $30 off from the MSRP price of $79.

How it works

This is a group buy campaign that needs to acquire at least the stated minimum amount of pledges from backers like you before the Unit Deliverable and any Add-Ons ship. We do not charge anyone until the Progress above hits 100% or greater, otherwise there is no charge. All campaign products are vetted as existing and functional so your order will be fulfilled within the Factory Lead Time if the campaign succeeds. Please see our FAQ page for more details on our billing process.
