Not long ago, I wrote a post regarding hardware and software interfacing a Maxim DS1620 Digital Thermometer/Thermostat. In my copious free time, I decided to follow through with a working example that displays temperature data on any LCD display that uses the ubiquitous Hitachi 44780 chipset. Below you’ll find a schematic as well as a […]

This is an update to a post that I made a week or so ago. I’ve reverted to using hardware and had good results this week. It took a lot of trial and error, but here we go: When the master implementation is finished, I plan to make the source public. It needs some hardening […]

Updated: For a working example, please read this post next. It provides schematic and software that will display the output of the Maxim DS1620 on any Hitachi 44780-compatible LCD. I was in the shop the other day, putting some FETs away and labeling drawers when I came across a drawer full of DS1620s. I have […]

I’ve been meaning to document project specifics as I develop in an attempt to share my software and provide an explanation as to how and why I chose a particular approach. I’d also like to provide readers with usable code that can be adapted to their own projects. Hopefully, this short article will be the […]
