MCP9802 temperature sensor and Arduino

MCP9802 is a digital temperature sensor from Microchip that measures temperatures between -55°C and +125°C to a digital word. It provides an accuracy of ±1°C (maximum) from -10°C to +85°C. The MCP9802 sensor comes with user-programmable registers that provide flexibility for temperature sensing applications. The register settings also allow user-selectable 9-bit to 12-bit temperature measurement resolution. This sensor has an industry standard 2-wire I2C compatible serial interface, allowing up to eight devices to be controlled in a single serial bus. In this blog post I am going to write about an Arduino sketch to interface the MCP9802 sensor with an Arduino for temperature sensing application. For illustration, I am using the MCP9802 sensor onboard the I2C EEPROM+Sensor breakout board.

I2C EEPROM plus Temperature Sensor breakout board

This tiny breakout board carries Microchip’s 24LC512 EEPROM and MCP9802 temperature sensor devices, both of which support I2C protocol. This board can be used for both sensing the ambient temperature and storing it. The MCP9802 is a digital temperature sensor with an user-selectable resolution from 9 to 12 bit. It can measure temperature ranging from -55°C to +125°C and notifies the host microcontroller when the ambient temperature exceeds a user programmed set point through its ALERT output pin. This board allows you to store up to 32000 temperature samples when you use the sensor in high resolution mode (12-bit, 0.0625°C) with each sample stored as two bytes.
