The DS18B20 Digital Thermometer provides 9 to 12-bit (configurable) temperature readings which indicate the temperature of the device.Information is sent to/from the DS18B20 over a 1-Wire interface, so that only one wire (and ground) needs to be connected from a central microprocessor to a DS18B20.If you dont already have the OneWire library then you will need to copy that folder into the libraries folder also.Now, before we get to the programming part, lets wire up our temperature sensor. The DS18B20 can be powered by between 3.0V and 5.5V so you can simply connect its GND pin to 0V and the VDD pin to +5V from the Arduino. However, the DS18B20 can also extract its power from the data line which means we only effectively need two wires to connect it up. This makes it great for use as an external sensor.
