Brand:  SparkFun

This is the same temperature sensor that is included in our SparkFun Inventor’s Kit. The TMP36 is a low voltage, precision centigrade temperature sensor. It provides a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the Celsius temperature. It also doesn’t require any external calibration to provide typical accuracies of ±1°C at +25°C and ±2°C over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range. We like it because it’s so easy to use: Just give the device a ground and 2.7 to 5.5 VDC and read the voltage on the Vout pin. The output voltage can be converted to temperature easily using the scale factor of 10 mV/°C.


  • Voltage Input: 2.7 V to 5.5 VDC
  • 10 mV/°C scale factor
  • ±2°C accuracy over temperature
  • ±0.5°C linearity
  • Operating Range: -40°C to +125°C

Basic low cost sensor
Thursday, 22 May 2014  |  Jim

Ideal as a basic temperature indicator - I use them on embedded projects to allow the system to monitor its own temperature so absolute accuracy is not a problem. Repeatability is more important and that seems fine. The 10 I bought were the G grade accord

Cheap and accurate
Tuesday, 28 January 2014  |  Neil

These sensors are cheap, easy to use and give accurate feedback. They're fine on the Arduino, but they can't be used on the Raspberry Pi without adding a MCP3008 (or equivalent) analogue-to-digital convertor.
