    Hello,

    In the past month, I have written a new library to control the Lepton FLiR (forward looking infrared) thermal camera module. The library can be found and downloaded here: https://github.com/NachtRaveVL/Lepton-FLiR-Arduino

    The Lepton FLiR module can be viewed/bought here: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13233

    This library exposes the entire functionality of the Lepton FLiR while also taking into account that the image delivered is 80×60 at 16bpp, which at 9600 bytes is more than smaller boards (such as the Nano, Uno, ATmega, etc.) even have the capacity to allocate. As such this library supports the ability to simply allocate a smaller image size and do software resizing/BLITing once the appropriate number of packet frames have been downloaded to write out a single line to the resultant image.

    Additionally, the library allows the user to set which I2C line to use, which temperature mode to use, which chip enable pin to use, allows users to set fast chip enable/disable functions, allows one to easily view the telemetry data, etc. It’s written to support multiple kinds of processors, but the Due/Zero/Teensy/etc. is recommended most.

    Feedback is of course welcomed, as is requests for additional functionality, etc.


    Thanks for looking!

    Hi – thank you for sharing this!</p>
    <p>Can you confirm what is the top frame rate that you were able to get?<br />
    if there is a way to improve with reduvced resolution or accuracy please let me know also…</p>
    <p>Thank you very much!<br />
