Temperature Sensor with Digital Output

Posted on Dec 16, 2012

This is a very simple to implement Temperature Sensor. It uses LM35DT as a semiconductor temperature sensor which operates with a +5 volt DC. It produces an analog output voltage, proportional to the change in surrounding temperature in Celsius scale (2mv/C). The analog output of the sensor is then passed to the ADC0804 IC which produces an 8-bit binary output (digital output) correspoding to the analog input voltage.

The digital output from ADC is then used to glow the LED which indicates the high/low logic (LED ON: Logic 0, LED OFF: Logic 1). The output of the ADC can be interfaced to a 7-segment diaply using a 7-segment driver or the digital output can be interfa
