Hi, I am looking for Temperature sensor, SPI or I2C , DIP package I browsed web for few like LM74,LM75 etc but they do not come in DIP package. Moslty they are in surface mount packages. Also I am using www.digikey.com online for shopping components. What are the decent alternatives? I found digikey site to be good though not having few components I was looking. Thanks - Surinder

If you want something clunkier, try a DS18S20 in the TO-92 housing. That's Dallas 1-wire bus, though, instead of SPI or I2C. -- Hans-Bernhard Broeker (b...@physik.rwth-aachen.de) Even if all the snow were burnt, ashes would remain.
Hans-Bernhard, Thanks for information. I have PIC16FXX programmer board. PIC support I2C and SPI so it is cleaner to use devices with these interfaces without having to add interface chip separately. I never used 1-Wire interface. But seeing following link about PIC/1-Wire looks good to start with. http://www.maxim-ic.com/appnotes.cfm/appnote_number/2420 On question of why DIP? I have DIP connectors on my programmer board and I am relatively more comfortable soldering DIP packages when required. As you suggested, DS18S20 in the TO-92 looks good as the pins appears to be long and wide to be soldered with ease and flexibility to push them in DIP slot or solder to a small wire. Vielen Dank Sehr! - Surinder

You can also buy or make small PCBs that adapts SMT packages to DIP packages. This increases your options dramatically without having to abandon the advantages of using DIP packages.

> Temperature sensor, SPI or I2C , DIP package If this is a one-off I can give you about 10 DS1620 (DIP-8) left over as samples from an old project. The part is obsolete but works well.
