This is the latest DS18B20 1-Wire digital temperature sensor. Reports degrees C with 9 to 12-bit precision, -55C to 125C (+/-0.5C). Each sensor has a unique 64-Bit Serial number etched into it - allows for a huge number of sensors to be used on one data bus. This is a wonderful part that is the cornerstone of many data-logging and temperature control projects.
Unique 1-Wire® interface requires only one port pin for communication
Each device has a unique 64-bit serial code stored in an onboard ROM
Multidrop capability simplifies distributed temperature sensing applications
Requires no external components
It can be powered from the data line. Power supply range is 3.0V to 5.5V
