Arduino Beginner’s Course Lesson 6– Reading Sensor Data – Temperature TMP36

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link During this lesson, we will go through the process of reading sensor data, the TMP36 temperature sensor to be precise. First lets describe the sensor in  more detail. The TMP36 (ebay) has a linear voltage to temperature output meaning there is no error correction to be calculated from our end, the sensor handles it brilliantly on its own. The following… Read Article →
