  • Reading 320-340 in an 80deg F house. I’m assuming my conversions are correct making 331 3 deg F. This is obviously wrong. Does it appear to be a fault of my own or is my TMP36 faulty?

    sensor = 331 degC = -16 degF = 3

  • “highly recommend you get your hands dirty. Hook up an LED to a 1k resistor, then a 330, then a 220, 100, 50, then finally blow the thing up by hooking it with no resistor.”

    Using this method, but using an arduino Uno board that outputs 5v dc I wasn’t able to blow the LED. Is this due to the voltage drop across the LED?
