Are you using an Arduino Uno on Linux? If so, you may have noticed that writing to the serial port in a loop can cause the Arduino Editor/Programmer software to appear to lock up, or even Linux having trouble using the serial port for your Uno.
It turns out there was a bug in the . . . → Read More: Fix your Arduino Uno for Linux
So you have played a bit with your Arduino, and have heard about other people using it to monitor the temperature, but weren’t sure how they did it – Here is how I did.
Maxim make a very simple 1-wire temperature sensor – the DS18B20 (the replacement to the DS1820). This 3 pin sensor looks . . . → Read More: Arduino 1-wire temperature sensors
