• EEVblog #669 – FLIR TG165 Thermal Imager Teardown

    What’s inside the new FLIR TG165 Visual IR Thermometer / Thermal Camera using the new Lepton sensor?
    How does it compare to the FLIR ONE & FLIR E4?
    Does it have a calibration shutter?
    Does it have any extra capability built in ready to be hacked?
    How easy is it to open? (SPOILER – it’s a BASTARD!)

        You couldn’t lever out the front cover that is over the LCD?
        My guess is that the shiny cover over the display is actually a thick sticker applied after production, not moulded in, with the screws underneath.

        Hi Dave,

        Actually the STM32 use a 8 MHz crystal oscillator for the internal PLL clock which output a clock at 72 MHz.

        Have a look at the “how to”s for replacing iPhone screens – It requires a heat gun and a suction cap to pull the glass out. Perhaps that may have worked here?

        The funky chip you were looking at at 22:40 look like a MEMS oscillator. Much smaller and more stable than quartz crystals. Neat devices!
