TMP36 temperature sensor circuit setup

For this exercise we need:

  • TMP36 sensor

    The TMP36 is temperature sensor created by a company named Analog Devices. It is easy to use and widely available. We get all the technical information about the TMP36 sensor in its datasheet. It is available at: http://www.analog.com/en/mems-sensors/digital-temperature-sensors/tmp36/products/product.html.

    TMP36 can measure temperature from -40°C to 125°C with a maximum ±2°C error. It is not good for checking human body temperature because the relative error is large enough to show bad health as good. But it is good in fire alarms, environment control systems, industrial process control systems, and so on. It needs 2.7V to 5.5V as input voltage to function. It gives output ...
