Greetings. First post.
Just received my MLX90640 breakout from Mouser. First Pimoroni purchase. I attached the pins and ran the Sparkfun sketches on an Adafruit Feather M0 wired to my Win7 laptop. I had to edit some incompatibilities, but it ran pretty well… except for this.
These are three screen grabs: my blank ceiling, my right palm (okay, mirrored image…good to know), and my thermal webcam selfie. Counting from top left, every 82nd pixel is 20-30 degrees hotter than its neighbors. Nothing in the field of view is really radiating 58 degrees. Can anyone enlighten me why my new thermal eye is behaving this way? Everything else about it seems ideal. Thanks in advance.
(I’m allowed only two links? I hope that limit expires quickly.)
