Just an update on the GridEYE project I talked about before.
The advising professor on the project provided our team with one device. For a while, we were wary to solder that part down on any board at risk of botching the process and leaving us without any device to work with. We were also only milling a design into copper rather than producing a PCB at first, and we wanted our final development PCB to have a GridEYE on-board.
So, we gave Panasonic a call, and after some verification that we were, in fact, students, they sent us a GridEYE broken out on a PCB.
In the weeks between my initial research and our team receiving the GridEYE breakout, DigiKey started carrying a similar part and Github user logxen wrote up a couple of great pieces of software for the GridEYE. He provides both the Arduino sketch to drive the GridEYE and query temperature data from it as well as a great Processing visualization of that data. You can find that repository here, and some images of my tests of it below.
Hopefully, if you're doing a similar project, logxen's work will help you out!
