IR Thermophile Array Sensor – Grid-EYE

64-Pixel infrared array temperature sensor
sensors grid-eye shadow


Panasonic Grid-EYE is Infra-Red sensor comprised of 64 individual Thermopile elements arranged in an 8x8 matrix. The sensor comes in a compact surface mount package and can be very easily integrated into IoT applications. Infra-red signals are used to detect heat sources and measure temperature.

The integrated lens in Grid-EYE focuses the infra-red in the field of view (FoV) on to the sensor elements. This generates voltage differences between electrodes of individual Thermopile elements, which can be converted to temperature information.

Grid-EYE’s integrated ASIC performs some core functions to enable sensor’s performance–pixel readouts, analog amplification, analog to digital conversion, sensitivity correction, correction for temperature effects, and digital readout over I2C bus. Furthermore, Grid-EYE is available in high or low gain variants.

Key features of Grid-EYE sensors

  • Low-Cost Surface Mount Components
  • Small package (11.6mm x 8mm x 4.3mm)
  • Package with 64 Thermopile MEMS pixels in 8x8 matrix
  • Panasonic’s custom ASIC to handle core sensor functions
  • Integrated lens with different FoV’s: 36°C, 60° and 90°
  • Simple digital readout of temperature data over I2C interface
  • Selectable frame-rate on the readout: 1 Hz or 10 Hz 
  • People tracking & counting algorithms for privacy enabled detection.
