NEW GUIDE: Adafruit AHT20 Temperature & Humidity Sensor #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
Sense temperature and humidity data for less!
The AHT20 is a nice but inexpensive temperature and humidity sensor from the same folks that brought us the DHT22. You can take sensor readings as often as you like, and it uses standard I2C so its super easy to use with any Arduino or Linux/Raspberry Pi board. This sensor has a typical accuracy of +- 2% relative humidity, and +-0.3 °C. There is only one I2C address so its not a good option when you need multiple humidity sensors.
The new Adafruit AHT20 Temperature & Humidity Sensor guide includes everything you need to get started sensing temperature and humidity. You’ll learn all about your new AHT20 breakout including pinouts, Arduino usage, and Python and CircuitPython usage.

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.
