This is the latest DS18B20 1-Wire digital temperature sensor from Maxim IC. Reports degrees C with 9 to 12-bit precision, -55C to 125C (+/-0.5C). Each sensor has a unique 64-Bit Serial number etched into it - allows for a huge number of sensors to be used on one data bus. This is a wonderful part that is the corner stone of many data-logging and temperature control projects.
The footprint design should be outlined drawing 21-0248 [ http://pdfserv.maximintegrated.com/package_dwgs/21-0248.PDF ] after checking the Maxim Integrated's links associated with the DS18B20.
There's a tutorial using this temperature sensor with the Electric Imp https://electricimp.com/docs/resources/onewire/.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
