ESP8266 based TMP175 temperature display project

In this project we will create an environmental system with a TMP175  and a Wemos Mini and we will then display the readings on an OLED display

The TMP175 device is a digital temperature sensors ideal for NTC and PTC thermistor replacement. The devices offer a typical accuracy of ±1°C without requiring calibration or external component signal conditioning. IC temperature sensors are highly linear and do not require complex calculations or look-up tables to derive the temperature. The on-chip 12-bit ADC offers resolutions down to 0.0625°C. The device is available in the industry standard LM75 SOIC-8 and MSOP-8 footprint.

The TMP175 feature SMBus, Two-Wire, and I2C interface compatibility. The TMP175 device allows up to 27 devices on one bus. The TMP175 features an SMBus Alert function.

The TMP175 is ideal for extended temperature measurement in a variety of communication, computer, consumer, environmental, industrial, and instrumentation applications.


  • TMP175: 27 Addresses
  • Digital Output: SMBus™, Two-Wire™, and I2C
    Interface Compatibility
  • Resolution: 9 to 12 Bits, User-Selectable
  • Accuracy:
    • ±1°C (Typical) from –40°C to 125°C
    • ±2°C (Maximum) from –40°C to 125°C
  • Low Quiescent Current: 50-µA, 0.1-µA Standby
  • Wide Supply Range: 2.7 V to 5.5 V
  • Small 8-Pin MSOP and 8-Pin SOIC Packages


Lets take a look a the shields and boards that are required for this project


Image Summary
The Wemos mini – ESP8266 based board, it comes with various headers. This is the beauty of it you can create stackable projects with the board and pin compatible shields

This is the TMP175 module I used
A  64×48 OLED screen
This is simply a base, you plug the Wemos Mini into one side and you can plug a shield or shields into the other side

Parts List

I connect the Wemos Mini to the dual base and then put the OLED shield along side this, I then connect the MPL3115A2 sensor to the OLED or the spare base
