A simple diode or the output of a transistor bias circuit can be used as a rough temperature sensor. For this purpose, a calibration procedure using a precise temperature sensor is recommended. This article shows how to calibrate such a temperature sensing circuit using an Arduino and the SHT15 Sensirion temperature/humidity sensor module.

    Does this work with LEDs? If yes, does this mean we have temperature AND light sensor AND light emitter in one? No way, gonna have to try this one :)

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
