DSI621 Programmer
The Dallas Semiconductor DS1621 thermometer/thermostat IC can be programmed and read via a two-wire bus. Instead of using a full-blown PC for this purpose, you can use this handy, battery-operated programmer.The Dallas Semiconductor DS1621 is a general-purpose thermometer with thermostat functions. The features of this device have already been fully described in the article ‘Temperature measurements with the DS1621’ in the March 2000 issue of Elektor Electronics. If you missed this issue, you can find the necessary information on the device data sheet, which you can obtain from www.dalsemi.com/datasheets/pdfs/1621.pdf. Here we will only repeat the essentials. All read and write operations for both the thermometer and the thermostat take place via an I2C bus.
