This is the same temperature sensor that is included in our SparkFun Inventor’s Kit. The TMP36 is a low voltage, precision centigrade temperature sensor. It provides a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the Celsius temperature. It also doesn’t require any external calibration to provide typical accuracies of ±1°C at +25°C and ±2°C over the −40°C to +125°C temperature range. We like it because it’s so easy to use: Just give the device a ground and 2.7 to 5.5 VDC and read the voltage on the Vout pin. The output voltage can be converted to temperature easily using the scale factor of 10 mV/°C.


  • Voltage Input: 2.7 V to 5.5 VDC
  • 10 mV/°C scale factor
  • ±2°C accuracy over temperature
  • ±0.5°C linearity
  • Operating Range: −40°C to +125°C

Temperature Sensor - TMP36

I am currently playing around with Arduino and noticed the TMP36 sensor is used to make an analog thermometer.
Jaycar used to have a shop in my town but they recently closed down which makes it inconvenient to purchase small quantities of electronic components.
I googled TMP36 and up came Little Bird, the price seemed great so I ordered a few and they arrived very promptly. I would not hesitate to use them again.
