LM35 Interfacing with Arduino UNO

Overview of LM35


LM35 Temperature Sensor


LM35 is a temperature sensor which can measure temperature in the range of -55°C to 150°C.

It is a 3-terminal device that provides analog voltage proportional to the temperature. Higher the temperature, higher is the output voltage.

The output analog voltage can be converted to digital form using ADC so that a microcontroller can process it.

For more information about LM35 and how to use it, refer the topic LM35 Temperature Sensor in the sensors and modules section.

Measure Temperature using LM35 with Arduino Uno

Measuring the temperature of surroundings using LM35 and displaying it on the serial monitor of Arduino.


Here, LM35 output is given to analog pin A1 of Arduino UNO. This analog voltage is converted to its digital form and processed to get the temperature reading.


LM35 Temperature Sensor Code for Arduino Uno

const int lm35_pin = A1;	/* LM35 O/P pin */

void setup() {

void loop() {
  int temp_adc_val;
  float temp_val;
  temp_adc_val = analogRead(lm35_pin);	/* Read Temperature */
  temp_val = (temp_adc_val * 4.88);	/* Convert adc value to equivalent voltage */
  temp_val = (temp_val/10);	/* LM35 gives output of 10mv/°C */
  Serial.print("Temperature = ");
  Serial.print(" Degree Celsius\n");
