Evaluation Board for MLX90614 IR Thermometer (SEN-10740)
RETIRED PRODUCT - We've stopped stocking this product or it has been retired by the manufacturer and is no longer for sale. This page remains available for its resources and as a source of potential interest.
This is an evaluation board for the MLX90614 IR Thermometer. The sensor is connected to an ATmega328 running at 3.3V with a STK500 (Arduino) 8MHz bootloader. Code can be loaded through the FTDI basic interface and the Arduino environment..
The MLX9061 sensor is a high precision, small size, single zone IR thermometer with an optional SMBus (two-wire) or PWM interface. The ATMega328 comes with demo code that gives a temperature readout in degrees F at 38400bps. You can use a 3.3V FTDI Basic to connect to the board.
Note: The label on the FTDI header is incorrect. It should read VCC instead of 3.3v. Sparkfun say they will fix this error in the next revision.
