The Celsius temperature sensor is a fast-response, high-accuracy temperature sensor. We have a sealed and protected version available here, but this unsealed board-level version is great for integrating directly into projects and for use in dry environments.
The sensor is the Measurement Specialties TSYS01, which is accurate to ±0.1°C and communicates over I2C. It operates on 3.3V I2C voltage but can accept power input up to 5.5V. It includes four solder pads for ground, 3.3V-5.5V power, and 3.3V I2C lines.
The TSYS01 sensor itself has a fast time response and we designed the whole package to maintain that speed.
The electrical schematic and board layout are open-source and the design files are available in the Technical Details tab. Feel free to adapt for your own needs.

1. Download TSYS01 Arduino Library.
2. Install software such as the Example Code to your microcontroller.
3. Solder appropriately colored wires to the solder pads.
4. Connect the bare wires to the appropriate microcontroller pins, using a logic level converter if your board has 5V logic:
- Green: SCL (3.3V logic)
- White: SDA (3.3V logic)
- Red: +2.5-5.5V
- Black: Ground
