Temperature Sensor

Postby Zeriscope » Thu Sep 03, 2015 8:21 pm

Can someone help with the issue I am having with a temperature sensor?

We are using a TMP36 w/ a .1 micro-fared cap across the AVCC and AGND wire leads and the data is not consistent. When displayed, the data line constantly spikes and drops as if there is noise in the data transmission.

Any info would be great.

Hi William,

There's a tutorial on how to use the AD TMP36 sensor together with BITalino available in this video:

We have seen your described behaviour happen before when the wires are faulty or not fully soldered.

Please double check your soldering and wires and if you have further issues let us know.

Best regards,
The BITalino Team
