Arduino Project – Temperature Shield made from Stripboard

In this tiny stripboard temperature shield Arduino project, the temperature from a MCP9700 temperature sensor is read by the Arduino and sent to a PC over a USB cable. The PC runs a program written in the Processing language that displays the current temperature and the temperature history on a graph.

Three LEDs on the shield can be programmed to switch on when the current temperature falls within certain temperature ranges.

The status of the LEDs is also shown in the Processing application window. Find the circuit diagram and parts list for the shield as well as all the software needed to build the project at the Starting Electronics website.


Tutorial 14: Arduino LCD Thermometer

In this tutorial, a temperature sensor (MCP9700 linear active thermistor IC) and LCD are connected to the Arduino. The Arduino reads the temperature from the MCP9700 on analog pin A0 and displays the temperature on the LCD.
