high accuracy self calibrating temperature logger

Post by qwerty15 » Thu Oct 11, 2007 6:09 am

hi guys,

what is the cheapest way to design a high accuracy self calibrating temperature logger? Could I use opamps and maybe 2 RTDs to achieve this? The recording temperature range is -40F to 112F...what do you guys think? I appreciate your help in advance.

are there any micros out there that can make this really easy? for example EEPROM, A/D, self calibrating all in one?

Define "high accuracy."

I also have to ask what the time frame is. For example, you want
to measure temperature over a period of 2 hours, or 2 days, or
2 months, etc.
LEDs vs Bulbs, LEDs are winning.
