THERMAL HAT is an M5StickC compatible thermal camera. Same as M5Unit THERMAL, this stickc HAT module Integrates MLX90640 which can be used to measure the surface temperature of an object and form a thermographic image by a temperature gradient composed of different surface temperatures. Now that it has a cover of a case of stickc HAT, you can pretty much move all the implementations to stickc-based controller, featured with tiny, low-cost and highly-productization.
The MLX90640 Infrared (IR) sensor array combines high resolution and reliable operation in harsh environments, providing a cost-effective alternative to more expensive high-end thermal imaging cameras. Unlike the case of a microbolometer, the sensor does not require frequent recalibration, ensuring continuous monitoring and reducing system cost.
The field of view (FoV) option includes a standard 55° x 35° version and a wide angle version of 110° x 75°. This Unit is 110°×75° FoV, also known as the BAA package.
Connect with M5StickC via GOIO 0/26 (I2C add: 0x33).
Works as expected. What a neat device and use it in my lab to detect heat from my circuit board components.
