RE: FLIR Lepton v2 breakout Board/BBB

Hello,

Is there a recommended Camera for working w/ the FLIR Lepton v2 breakout?

Seth

P.S. I have found some from the digikey.com site but I am not sure exactly which one would better work or better suit the needs of my experiments. Please reply when you have time.

Hi @silver2row, this one: (80x60)

https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/flir-lepton/500-0659-01/5215153

Driver:
https://www.digikey.com/eewiki/display/linuxonarm/FLIR+Lepton+on+BeagleBone+Black+and+Green#FLIRLeptononBeagleBoneBlackandGreen-Leptonqtapplication

FLIR stopped making the non-shutter models.

I’ve not tried this model: (80x60)

https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/flir-lepton/500-0763-01/6250105

These require a new driver… (160x120)

Edit: Instead of the Flir Lepton v2, take a look at this adapter first:

The linux UVC driver can be found here: https://github.com/groupgets/purethermal1-uvc-capture

Hello,

I already ordered the FLIR Lepton v2 version. Do those instructions still hold relevant to the FLIR Lepton v2?

I am asking b/c ordering another item, the PURE Thermal from GroupGets, is not in my near future. If that is the only way around the instructions, I will think about it.

Seth

P.S. I know this is not your issue. I see your edit and I was just commenting. I may try the old way, circa '18, to get this up and running but I may follow the edit in your last post too. I will update you soon.

My instructions for the BeagleBone family with the 80x60 based sensors work fine with the Lepton v2.

Sir,

Even though the part is obsolete, will I still be able to purchase it and use it?

Seth

Correct, as long as we list stock you’ll be able to still purchase it.
