Re: Making a thermometer with a thermal sensor and an OLED Breakout Board - 16-bit Color 0.96"
Firstly, thank you guys for all of your help!
More specifications as to the use of the thermometer are to be able to read the body temperature of an infant by applying contact to the forehead, that being said. Would the TMP36 temperature sensor still be adequate for the product? I would prefer if the temperature sensor would be able to read the temperature accurately with an error margin of o.5% should a thin layer of clothes be applied and less than that should it be applied directly against the skin.
As for the board, I have experience programming FPGA's though I do not necessarily have the time required to build my microcontroller from a transistor level. If anything I would prefer to design at a low level function implementation using C or a Arduino programming language (which I would have to learn) and I have also worked developing drivers and coding in C, I am also familiar with Linux. I would like to build a large scale prototype first (in a breadboard), would you guys be kind enough to point me towards the materials that I would need, like good breadboards, typical resistors and wires. Those would be very helpful.
Thank you so much for your time.
