Chipkit Uno and TMP175 digital temperature sensor example

In this example we will connect a TMP175 to a Chipkit Uno and the example will be written in the Arduino IDE

The TMP75 and TMP175 devices are digital temperature sensors ideal for NTC and PTC thermistor replacement. The devices offer a typical accuracy of ±1°C without requiring calibration or external component signal conditioning. IC temperature sensors are highly linear and do not require complex calculations or look-up tables to derive the temperature. The on-chip 12-bit ADC offers resolutions down to 0.0625°C. The devices are available in the industry standard LM75 SOIC-8 and MSOP-8 footprint.

The TMP175 and TMP75 feature SMBus, Two-Wire, and I2C interface compatibility. The TMP175 device allows up to 27 devices on one bus. The TMP75 allows up to eight 8 on one bus. The TMP175 and TMP75 both feature an SMBus Alert function.

The TMP175 and TMP75 devices are ideal for extended temperature measurement in a variety of communication, computer, consumer, environmental, industrial, and instrumentation applications.
