LM35 to ADC


LM35 to ADC
The circuit described here is the digital and display section of a thermometer; the analogue circuitry and signal conditioning required to use an LM35 temperature sensor are described elsewhere in this issue (‘LM35 to ADC’). The analogue-to-digital converter used here is hidden inside a PIC16F873 microcontroller behind the RA5 port pin. It has a resolution of 10 bits (1024 steps), allowing a temperature range of 128 ?C to be divided into steps of exactly 128 ?C / 1024 = 0.125 ?C.
