Hello everyone,

I'm a bit of a noobie in electronics and programming, so bare with me.

I followed this tutorial (https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/mlx90614-ir-thermometer-hookup-guide/all) and it worked fine.

I realized it is in SMBus and I wanted to try configuring it in PWM. (education purposes)

But like I said I'm a noobie in programming, so I don't know how to program it.

You go ahead and take your clothes off, if you want. I'll keep mine on. Don't want to scare anyone.

Why do you think that PWM will be remotely useful?
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

What I know about PWM is, it could be made as a thermal relay with Tmin and Tmax. I don't know if there is more to it than that.

I know SMBus is way easier and probably better as a thermomter, but I just want to learn how to do it in PWM, if it is possible.

Atleast tell me the code logic behind it and I'll figure it out, because I didn't find any on the web.
