Digital Temperature Sensor Breakout - AS6212 (Qwiic) Hookup Guide
The SparkFun Digital Temperature Sensor Breakout - AS6212 (Qwiic) provides a combination of high temperature accuracy with excellent low power consumption using the AS6212 digital temperature sensor from ams AG. The AS6212 measures temperature with ±0.2°C accuracy between -10°C to 65°C (full measurement range is -40°C to 125°C), consumes an average of 6µA (0.1µA in standby) and communicates over I2C so naturally we put it on a Qwiic breakout to add to our ever expanding Qwiic system. All of this in a tiny IC package measuring 1.5mm x 1mm.
In order to follow along with this tutorial you'll need a few items along with the AS6212 breakout.
First off, the Digital Temperature Sensor Breakout - AS6212 (Qwiic) needs a controller like an Arduino development board or single-board computer (SBC) like a Raspberry Pi to communicate with the board. Click the button below to toggle to recommended Raspberry Pi and Qwiic Pi products.
Along with a development board or SBC, you'll need at least one Qwiic cable. SparkFun carries a variety of lengths and types of Qwiic cables as seen here:
