Interfacing the TMP006 IR temperature sensor with the Bus Pirate
This article explains how to interface the Texas Instruments TMP006 non-contact IR temperature sensor evaluation module (TMP006EVM) to a Linux computer using the Bus Pirate from Dangerous Prototypes. A small Java program has been written which queries the TMP006 registers using the Bus Pirate, calculates the object temperature and outputs to the screen. Some basic theory of operation is given and a temperature vs time charts from a cooling mug of coffee is presented.
