Panasonic – AMG8831: Grid-EYE Infrared Array Sensor

Grid-EYE is an 8 x 8 (64) pixel infrared array sensor. The integrated circuit performs a selected calculation that allows mapping of specific temperature data as thermal image. The sensor can detect temperature changes in 60 degree angle. This sensor offers digital output (I2C) for thermal presence, direction, and temperature values. The built-in lens includes a 60° viewing angle. Grid-EYE features compact SMD design using MEMS thermopile technology.
