low cost tiny components to make datalogging affordable!
Adafruit’s Mike Barela has designed a temperature and humidity monitor built around the Atmel-powered (ATtiny85) Trinket. As Barela notes, monitoring sensors are a very common feature in current-gen Internet of Things (IoT) projects.
“While the Trinket does not have a serial monitor built in, it [does] talk over various protocols including software serial, I2C (two wire) and SPI,” Barela explained. “This project can be placed in a very small enclosure and used anywhere environmental monitoring is needed. [Plus], the code and concepts may be used in a number of your own projects.”
Aside from the Atmel-powered Trinket, key components include:
- RGB backlight negative/positive LCD 16×2 + extras
- Standard LCD 16×2 + extras
- i2c / SPI character LCD backpack
- DHT22 temperature-humidity sensor + extras/DHT11 basic temperature-humidity sensor
- Breadboarding wire bundle
- Half-size breadboard
In terms of software libraries, Barela’s project uses TinyWireM (a Trinket-compatible alternative to the Arduino Wire),
