Digital Thermometer using PIC Microcontroller and LM35 Temperature Sensor

Digital Thermometer using PIC Microcontroller and LM35 Temperature Sensor

Thermometer can be easily constructed using a PIC Microcontroller and LM35 Temperature Sensor. LM35 series is a low cost and precision Integrated Circuit Temperature Sensor whose output voltage is proportional to Centigrade temperature scale. Thus LM35 has an advantage over other temperature sensors calibrated in Kelvin as the users don’t require subtraction of large constant voltage to obtain […]
