ABSTRACT This report covers the design and operation of a temperature control unit with a USB interface. The temperature is controlled using Velleman’s K8055 USB experimental kit, which has an 8 bit analog-to-digital converter to transform the output from the sensor into a digital form. The user can set the desired temperature to a certain value using a friendly computer interface attached to the experimental kit. The temperature is then corrected until it matches the user selected level. 3

Introduction Temperature control is a common electronics process found in several applications. Besides being used in industrial installations and machines, temperature control systems can be found in many types of devices and appliances that make our life more convenient and comfortable. For example, temperature control systems are used in setting and establishing the desired temperature levels in our homes using an air conditioner, or even monitoring the temperature of a chemical plant where steady temperature is paramount for full functionality as well as safety.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
