8. case 06 NTC#

8.1. Introduction#

The temperature sensor is a sensor that can sense the temperature and convert the temperature to output signal. The temperature sensor is core of temperature measurement instrument.

8.3. Hardware Connect#


Connect circuit as above picture and put 2 AAA batteries into batteries pack.

8.4. Principles of Circuits#


The GND of slot on micro:bit is into innards of batteries’ GND to generate current loop.

8.5. Introduction of Components#


The NTC is an analog temperature sensor where the output voltage and temperature form a liner relationship. The higher the temperature, the larger the output voltage. The experiment box included a NTC.


Note: Please note the positive and the negative when you are connecting.

8.6. Software#

Step 1#

Click makecode https://makecode.microbit.org/#

Click on “New Project” and set a new Project.


Step 2#

Reduction Formula:


The reading is an analog value of the IO port, we need a formula as above to convert the values into Celsius.

Step 3#

Set “Temperature” as a variable to store the Celsius. As above formula, convert the values of P0 into Celsius.


Show the temperature value and pauce a second.
