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.
