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.

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)
