More Thermal Vision Sensors Supported!

Hi Folks,

In regards to our previous update about support for more thermal vision sensors the work is now complete. You'll be able to use your OpenMV Cam H7 (and M7/M4) with the MLX90640 and AMG8833 sensors which provide 32x24 and 8x8 thermal vision resolutions respectively. While not anywhere near as good as the FLIR Lepton 3.5 they are much cheaper. Anyway, the video update is below:

What's really cool about using these sensors is that you can do thermal vision overlays!

For purchasing you can buy these sensors at SparkFun:

MLX90640 (55 degree FoV) - https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14844

MLX90640 (110 degree FoV) - https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14843

AMG8833 - https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14607

Don't forget to buy some Qwiic cables too. You just then just need to hookup P4 to SCL and P5 to SDA you're ready to play (and hookup GND to GND and 3.3V to 3.3V).
