One-Wire Spy

monitor for 1-wire ICs

One-Wire Spy
One-Wire Spy is a useful aid that enables a PC to monitor the communications between a microcontroller and a 1-wire IC from Dallas Semiconductor.The semiconductor manufacturer Dallas Semiconductor offers a series of components that can be controlled, read and programmed by a master device (such as a microcontroller) via a single-wire bus. These ‘1-wire’ devices are mainly available as temperature sensors, battery-management ICs and memory ICs. There is also an identity IC, which contains only an identification serial number. Table 1 summarises the available devices. With a 1-wire bus, it is possible to use not only normal IC packages, but also TO-92, PR-35 and flipchip packages. Dallas Semiconductor even offers ICs in button-cell format, under the name ‘iButton’.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
