Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems has introduced a complete wireless evaluation platform to help designers to take full advantage of the contactless temperature-measurement capability of its Grid-EYE Infra-Red (IR) array sensor.
The Grid-EYE Evaluation Kit integrates a very low-power Bluetooth Smart module, the PAN1740, a microcontroller and an AMG8832 Grid-EYE sensor. The sensor itself is a 64-pixel IR camera in a surface-mount package measuring 11.6mm x 8mm x 4.3mm, which includes the MEMS sensor, lens and I2C interface.
The PAN1740 Bluetooth module draws 4.9mA in Transmit or Receive modes, which means it can be powered by coin-cell batteries.
