**Replacement: **SEN-10740. The latest revision corrects the silkscreen error on the FTDI header. We've also added pull-up resistors to the I2C lines. This page is for reference only.
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. We will fix this error in the next revision.
