The MCP9800 Thermal Sensor PICtail™ Demo Board demonstrates how to interface the MCP9800 to a PICmicro® microcontroller using the PICkit™ 1 Flash Starter Kit as a platform. The kit includes:
- A PIC16F684 14-pin Flash-based 8-bit CMOS microcontroller that can be used with PICkit™ 1 Flash Starter Kit
- Firmware that provides the I2C™ interface and temperature conversion routines to communicate with the MCP9800 and convert serial data to temperature data
The MCP9800 Thermal Sensor PICtail Demo Board can also be used as a stand-alone module to quickly add thermal sensing capability to any existing application. This basic sensor functionality is implemented on a small Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and an interface via a standard 100 mil header.
