Two AVR system as outlined here has now been completed.

Thermopile Pitch and Roll sensor and amplifier board

V 2.0 (with a2d convertor and spi interface)


Schematic (using AD7923):

fitting the pcb into a 20mm square is proving hard, but hopefully it will prove possible, and can be sent off to batchpcb soon.

V 1.0 (analogue)

A milled enclosure has now been made for smaller Nicera sensors obtained from Chartland electronics

The plan is to fit a SMD amplifier board inside the enclosure. The design is now complete and has been sent to for production :-)

The prototype thermopile sensor unit has been epoxied to a pice of balsa that will for the back of the parachute release mechanism on the glider.
