Calibrating Thermistors on a 3.3v Arduino

Posted on Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 in Arduino by DP


Edward Mallon writes, “I’ve managed to get cheap thermistors calibrated to about to +/- 0.2C with 3.3v Arduinos. Instead of playing whack-a-mole with the various sources of error, I simply rolled them into some synthetic Steinheart-Hart constants, and I was able to get the therm’s output onto the reference line from a si7051. The cool thing about ti is that the thermistor, and the reference sensor cost less than a single high precision thermistor would have. Not sure if this approach would work beyond 40 degrees of range, but that’s good enough for my purposes.”
