This is a ESP32-compatible C component for the Maxim Integrated DS18B20 Programmable Resolution 1-Wire Digital Thermometer device.

It supports multiple devices on the same 1-Wire bus.

It is written and tested for v2.1 and v3.0 of the ESP-IDF environment, using the xtensa-esp32-elf toolchain (gcc version 5.2.0).


Requires esp32-owb.


See esp32-ds18b20-example for an example that supports single and multiple devices on a single bus.


In cooperation with the underlying esp32-owb component, this component includes:

  • External power supply mode (parasitic mode not yet supported).
  • Static (stack-based) or dynamic (malloc-based) memory model.
  • No globals - support any number of DS18B20 devices on any number of 1-Wire buses simultaneously.
  • 1-Wire device detection and validation, including search for multiple devices on a single bus.
  • Addressing optimisation for a single (solo) device on a bus.
  • CRC checks on temperature data.
  • Programmable temperature measurement resolution (9, 10, 11 or 12-bit resolution).
  • Temperature conversion and retrieval.
  • Separation of conversion and temperature retrieval to allow for simultaneous conversion across multiple devices.


Automatically generated API documentation (doxygen) is available here.
