MLX90640 Thermal Camera Breakout

The Pimoroni PIM365 is a thermal imaging camera breakout board that utilizes the sophisticated Melexis MLX90640 far-infrared camera sensor. The MLX90640 camera has an array of 768 (32 x 24) IR pixels that can detect temperatures from -40°C to +300°C with approximately 1°C accuracy and at up to 64 FPS. The breakout board makes it easy to use the camera with Raspberry Pi or Arduino, using I2C and 3 V to 6 V supply.
