Grid-EYE Evaluation Kit

Grid-EYE sensor Evaluation Kit enables fast prototyping of IoT and many other applications

Panasonic Industry Europe has launched this evaluation kit for its Grid-EYE infrared array sensor which integrates a ”nanopower” Bluetooth smart module and a microcontroller. The kit is intended for prototyping with the Grid-EYE sensor, a 64 pixel IR camera in a surface mount package measuring 11.6mm x 8mm x 4.3mm which incorporates the MEMS sensor, lens and an I2C interface.

The integrated PAN1740 Bluetooth module in the evaluation kit draws only 4.9mA in transmit or receive operating modes, meaning it can be powered by coin cell batteries. The IR sensor has 64 thermopile elements in an 8×8 grid format that detect absolute surface temperature without any contact.
