Panasonic Grid-EYE (AMG88xx) Shields

Overview

The Panasonic AMG88XX is an 8x8 (64) pixel infrared array sensor available only in a SMD design. Here are two sources for easily working with this sensor:

Requirements AMG88xx Evaluation Kit

On the AMG88xx Evaluation Kit, all jumpers except the J11 and J14 must be removed. This shield can only be used with a board that provides a configuration for Arduino connectors and defines node aliases for I2C and GPIO interfaces (see Shields for more details).

The same shield designation can also be used with breakout boards like Adafruit AMG8833 8x8 Thermal Camera Sensor 2. The wires should be connected according to the table above.

Programming

Correct shield designation (see the table above) for your shield must be entered when you invoke west build. For example:

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nrf52840dk_nrf52840 samples/sensor/amg88xx -- -DSHIELD=amg88xx_eval_kit
