Save the Earth One Resistor at a Time – External pull-up resistor no longer needed for DS18B20 temp sensor

Resistor-Capture

Save the Earth One Resistor at a Time – External pull-up resistor no longer needed for DS18B20 temp sensor.

Using the updated Arduino 1-Wire library code presented here, you can eliminate the need for an external pull-up resistor for typical small networks of DS18B20 temperature sensors.  This should also work with any AVR processor and other types of 1-Wire devices as well. You can download the updated 1-Wire library here…

This is a cool engineering analysis of 1wire pullups… we still strongly suggest putting in a pullup resistor 🙂
