Adafruit's Description of the TMP36 - Analog Temperature sensor [TMP36]


Wide range, low power temperature sensor outputs an analog voltage that is proportional to the ambient temperature. To use, connect pin 1 (left) to power (between 2.7 and 5.5V), pin 3 (right) to ground, and pin 2 to analog in on your microcontroller. The voltage out is 0V at -50°C and 1.75V at 125°C. You can easily calculate the temperature from the voltage in millivolts: Temp °C = 100*(reading in V) - 50

See the webpage for datasheets and more information.

Temperature Sensor

Temperature-sensing is a vital part of many Arduino projects.

This guide will show you how to use the TMP36 temperature sensor with a 100% compatible Arduino development board, the Little Bird Uno R3 board to read the surrounding temperature.

With temperature detection, you could create a solar-powered temperature sensor, a biofeedback device that uses body temperature data, or even a smart coaster that lets you know when your coffee or tea is safe to drink!
