The LM35 of National Semiconductors that is used in this project is a precision centigrade temperature sensor, which has an analog output voltage. It has a range of -55ºC to +150ºC and a accuracy of ±0.5ºC . The output voltage is 10mV/ºC . The output voltage is converted by the AD convertor of the ATMega8. The temperature is displayed on an LCD module. In this example the thermometer has a range of 0ºC to 40ºC and a resolution of 0.5ºC. If you want to have a readout in Fahrenheit you can use the LM34.

This 3-digit digital thermometer is easy to build for beginners or hobbyits. PIC16F628 is used to read digital values of temperature from a DS1820 sensor. All 7-segments are driven by a power logic 8-bit shift register TPIC6B595 with open collector output. For the 7-segment we need 12V volt to drive it because it has 3 LED per one segment. Source code in C Compiler is available.

At this thermometer, the IC thermo sensor (S8100) or the diode (1S1588) is used as the thermo sensor. When using the IC thermo sensor, the thermometry to +100°C from -40°C is possible. Also, when using the diode, the measurement to +150°C from -20°C is possible. Both sensors are contained in the kit.

The circuit seems to be very popular because it is so simple and still has a very useful and practical application and It is considered by some the perfect circuit to get started with AVR microcontrollers.
This thermometer can be used as a standalone thermometer with LCD display or it can be read out with a PC running Linux, Windows, MacOSX or solaris. BSD Unix and others are probably also possible to use for reading the temperatures. No special drivers are needed.

The Digital thermometer was built by using the temperature sensor LM35DZ, PIC16F877 microcontroller and MAX232 IC. Temperature measurements can also be viewed on a computer program which can monitor the state of COM ports of a PC. Sample measurement data received through COM2 is being viewed on the SERIAL WATCHER program which is distributed freely on the internet.
