Pic thermometer with LCD and several DS1820's ?

    Hi all.

    I'm looking for a code for a PIC (16F84 etc), which would show
    temperatures of several DS1820 family sensor temperatures on a LCD
    screen simultaneously.

    Knowing next to nothing about coding, I can not modify any existing
    codes which I found from the web to do my job.

    Thanks in advance,

    I suggest you start learning. That's what things like MPLAB are
    for. Pre-existing coding is highly unlikely to fit without
    changes, because hardware configurations vary.

    Or you can hire a consultant. Much more expensive.

    if you mail me your requirements, i can possibly
    give you something, for a couple of dollars ...

    the stuff that i've already got you wont be able to use in your
    design without modifying.

  4. check http://www.phanderson.com/ IIRC he made something like this with
    one of our boards PIC-MT

    I second Tsvetan's recommendation. Check http://www.phanderson.com/
    The code you find there will show you how to communicate with a DS1820
    and write to an LCD. If you want to communciate with multiple sensors
    on a 1-wire bus you will want to get DalSemi's PDF about the process of
    interrogating the bus for multiple devices. I did a 2-sensor thermo
    outdoor) after studying those sources.
