Temperature sensor to OP Amps

Post by Sufre Haji Muhamad »

HI, I am working with PIC16F877A to operate a motor using a temperature sensor (LM35DZ) reading in Deg Celcius with output 10mV = 1C, as far as I know, it needs LM358 (operational amplifier). Does any body have experience how to connect these components to the PIC? Is there any other technique being used for this purpose? Help me please....

If you use a 10 Bit ADC (ReadAsInt) then Resolution is approx 4.9mV. Or have though of a using lower external reference voltage for ADC to increase sensitivity? I believe that requires the FCD file for you chip to be modified. I'm not saying these are better, just a bit eaiser.

FCD files are the definition files used by Flowcode to give specific information about your microcontroller. In v3 the FCD file also contains the code to perform an ADC conversion.
