CircuitPython library for AMG88xx thermal camera.

Project description

Introduction

Documentation Status Discord Build Status

Adafruit CircuitPython module for the AMG88xx GRID-Eye IR 8x8 thermal camera.

Dependencies

This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-amg88xx

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-amg88xx

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-amg88xx

Usage Example

Of course, you must import the library to use it:

import busio
import adafruit_amg88xx

The way to create an I2C object depends on the board you are using. For boards with labeled SCL and SDA pins, you can:

import board

You can also use pins defined by the onboard microcontroller through the microcontroller.pin module.

Now, to initialize the I2C bus:

i2c_bus = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA)

Once you have created the I2C interface object, you can use it to instantiate the AMG88xx object

amg = adafruit_amg88xx.AMG88XX(i2c_bus)

You can also optionally use the alternate i2c address (make sure to solder the jumper on the back of the board if you want to do this)

amg = adafruit_amg88xx.AMG88XX(i2c_bus, addr=0x68)

Pixels can be then be read by doing:

print(amg.pixels)
