I am quite intrigued to build myself a K-type thermocouple reader. This could be useful in my lab as well as
for some stuff at home.
I read that people recommend the MAX6675 or MAX31855 (http://www.maxim-ic.com/datasheet/index.mvp/id/7273
) to amplify the thermocouple voltage...
What I am struggling with is to find a UK supplier. RS components sells the 6675 but I would rather have one that is already on a breakout board (as you can get them on ebay in the US).
Does anyone know another place to order those?
If I can't get it on a breakout board, what other options are there to mount it?
Is there a different part more readily available in the UK?
