SparkFun Grid Eye IR Array Breakout

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 the handy Qwiic system.


The on-board AMG8833 Grid-EYE possesses an accuracy rate of ±2.5°C with a temperature range of 0°C to 80°C. 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.
