Yesterday i received my ever so magical package from Sparkfun! One of the things i ordered was a dallas DS18B20 Temperature sensor.
To my dismay, it did not function because i needed a 4k7 pull-up resistor to connect to DQ (the data output pin) I only have current limiting resistor.
Is there a way to get around this?
If not, is there a way to MAKE a pull up resistor? Even if its a whole new circuit involving transistors and capacitors I can make it. As long as the circuit acts like the pull-up resistor.
Or! Does anyone know where I can find some pull-up resistors in junk items? :-?
