Keywords:thermocouple  microcontroller 

Here's discussion on how to implement a thermocouple interface. The thermocouple circuit interfaces with the MSP430F5529 microcontroller from Texas Instruments. The MSP430F5529 is a 16bit microcontroller with 20bit addressing and an integrated 12bit analogue-to-digital converter (ADC). The integrated ADC is used to convert the thermocouple voltage into digital values, and the MSP430F5529 CPU is used to convert the digital values into temperature and store them in memory. A complete code set accompanies this document. For this document, a Type K thermocouple is used, and the measured temperature range is limited to 0°C to 100°C.
