The MLX90621 delivers unmatched noise versus speed performance providing 0.4K NETD (noise equivalent temperature difference) at 16Hz. It is available in small size, TO39 metal can package for a cost effective 16x4 pixel thermal array. Factory calibrated to operate over a wide temperature range of -40 to 85 °C for sensor temperature it can measure object temperatures over the range of -20 to 300 °C. The device is available in three field of view options, including 60°x15°, 40°x10° and 120°x30°.Interface and control is managed via high speed I2C digital interface. The speed is programmable from a frame rate 0.5 to a frame rate of 512 Hz.
MLX90621 delivers unmatched performance and establishes a new milestone in the field of low cost, low resolution thermal imagers, enabling and facilitating a myriad of novel, low cost applications.
