In Part 1 I showed you how to make a prototype of my Raspberry P 7-segment display temperature monitor board – if you missed that, head back to that post and take a look – it includes a detailed tutorial video on how to put it all together.
In this part, I’ll show you the add-on board that I created using the exact same circuit and parts, all on a Pi-sized EZasPi board from Mikronauts. It fits directly on top of my Raspberry Pi and allows me to keep an eye on the temperature without having to SSH or similar.
My temperatures seem to be fine 99.9% of the time – but what a great bit of geek-chic hardware for the home either way!
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
