Lukasz made a one pixel thermal imaging camera. He uses a sensor that’s specialized to monitor a particular point of interest (i.e.: a heat sink, a motor or a component in a server). The results appear on an LCD, but the design can be changed to raise an alert, log the history or manage cold air flow with a fan.
The temperatures are also logged to USB. Any program that can talk to a serial port can steal the info and use it.
The code is available on its Hackster.io project page.
Jan Cumps is making a programmable LAB instrument with a Hercules LaunchPad Development Kit. The plan is to check the behavior of GaN devices with it.
