Digital Thermometer using Arduino and DS18B20

Digital Thermometer using Arduino and DS18B20 Sensor

In this project, we are going to make a Digital Thermometer using Arduino Uno. We will use DS18B20 temperature sensor to sense the temperature and Nokia 5110 LCD to display it. DS18B20 is a 1-Wire digital temperature sensor manufactured by Maxim Integrated and is capable of reporting degree celsius with 9 ~ 12 bit precision. Components Required Arduino Uno DS18B20 Temperature Sensor Nokia 5110 LCD 1KΩ Potentiometer 10KΩ Resistors – 4 4.7KΩ Resistor 1KΩ Resistor 330Ω Resistor Connecting Wires Breadboard Circuit Diagram Digital Thermometer using Arduino and DS18B20 Sensor Circuit Diagram Explanation First we [...]


Interfacing GLCD with PIC Microcontroller

I have already posted about Interfacing character LCD with PIC Microcontrollers. By using GLCD (Graphical LCD) we can present information in a better and user friendly way by using any patterns or shapes. Graphical LCDs are preferred where both character and graphical representation are required. Compared to Character LCD, GLCD is a bit complex and we need a powerful graphic library. MikroC PRO for PIC Microcontrollers provides powerful built in libraries for that. GLCD  MikroC Pro – Graphic LCD Library MikroC Pro for PIC [...]
