A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance varies significantly with temperature.

Step 1: ​Components

Step 2: ​Principle

The resistance of the thermistor varies significantly with ambient temperature. It can detect surrounding temperature changes in real time. Send the temperature data to analog I/O port of SunFounder. Next we only need to convert sensor output to Celsius temperature by simple programming and display it on the serial port

Step 3: Schematic Diagram

Step 4: ​Procedures

Step 1:

Build the circuit.

Step 2:

Download the code from

Step 3:

Upload the sketch to the Arduino Uno board

Click the Upload icon to upload the code to the control board.

If "Done uploading" appears at
the bottom of the window, it means the sketch has been successfully uploaded.

Now, you can see current temperature displayed on the serial monitor.

Step 5: Code
