  • Same problem with shield provided at Sparkfun class last Saturday. I see values in 570 range and seem to vary inversely to temp, if at all. I tried the tutorial (at http://www.ladyada.net/learn/sensors/tmp36.html) and displayed values around 280 deg. F. that changed very little, even with a bag of ice sitting on the sensor...

  • The class was great. Everyone was patient and helpful and I learned lots. But I have a question on the Danger Shield itself. Once home I played around with the shield some more and discovered I cannot get the output of the temperature sensor to vary at all. Watching the serial output, the value from the temp sensor doesn't move from around 570, even with an ice cube sitting on it. A friend who attended is having the same issue with his. I doubt multiple hardware failures. Is there any chance there's a problem in the sketch we were provided? I certainly don't see anything obvious but I am a noob.

  • I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones. Thanks, Sparkfun!
