 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

i have recently got hold of a ds1629, which combines clock and temperature measurement.
i) has anyone experience with this chip ? some report about 1 C self heating
ii) i have been looking for some sample code or a library for the arduino - found nothing - is there somethign out there ?

thx

I have not seen anything regarding this chip.

For the 1C temp you can normally sort it with a current limiting resistor.

sorry, did not get this, the device communicates via i2c and it does not have any particular power consuming part. so i guess the only power reduction can be obtained by cutting down on conversion rate and elimination of any square wave output.
meanwhile i adapted a DS1307 library to work on the DS1629 including the 'high precision' algorithm as described in the application note. it works like a charm.

Ahh sorry, yes, not sure what I was thinking there...

Sounds good. Have you uploaded it anywhere in case someone else goes searching?

stick it in the arduino playground, you have to log in or something to do it. Don't ask me though, never done it either smiley-grin
