SHT10 Humidity Sensor

Could someone help me out and save me some time by explaining how to receive the temperature and humidity off of the SHT10 Humidity Sensor?

Hey Andrew,

This is best described in the SHT10 Datasheet

  - there are specific timings required to initiate

    an incorrect timing will be ignored communication

  - what and which commands are valid

  - the format of the incoming results

  - accuracy +/- and calibration, ranges, formulas

  - humidity is dependant on current temp.

As well as sensor considerations to keep it working

But, ahh, is this not very much less than Nextion related?

Yes, this isn't related to Nextion but I don't know where else I could've gotten your detailed replies :)

I'll promise not to write any more irrelevant posts if you could please give me a link to where I can find this datasheet. I've looked around and ITEAD studios has nothing on the subject...

I've purchased two of them and I didn't have any other choice :)

By the way, I'm awaiting my Salae Logic Analyzer any day now so hopefully we'll resume our discussion about those 0xFF bytes.

Intel decided to bring Edison to End of Life

 - I haven't seen them go on any kind clearance sale yet.

Be on the look out for good prices,

  but try not to bid against each other (to keep final bids low)

Datasheets sources include places such as and

   - sparkfun has many tutorials and additional info

   - adafruit also has many tutorials and libraries

  Distributors such as digikey

   - a datasheet or link to datasheet for almost every part carried

  Manufacturers or the who holds the design (sensirion for SHTs)


Google partno datasheet (or Bing Yahoo)

  - avoid more the ad traps that make download some maze to get

  - but when you see digikey, sparkfun, adafruit in the results

      - pretty sure bet they will have if they sell or once sold it

Thanks a lot for the links!

Concerning Edison, you're right: it was discontinued a week or so ago. But, there still remains the Quark D2000. Any thoughts on it?

PS: I've just received two new Capacitive 7'' Nextion displays, both of them repeat the strange 0xFF behavior when working with Edison... I'll carry on looking into the issue once I get the analyzer.

Regarding Edison, my opinion goes something like

  if it was a serious development towards a product, 

  PCB changes to consolidate external sensors.

  then Intel resources to help with development still exist

  the SoC either remains available or offer similar chips

  - Edison was a mainstream mobile chip with graphics fused out

Any serious developments will still move foreward

  as they did before the Edison

But what they failed to capture was the linux developers

When I program a executable on a 32-bit Linux server

  - that executable was portable to the Edison, just upload.

From an internet enabled standpoint

  - all the normal server apps, raw TCP/UDP was possible

But this is kind of lost/glossed over to those not familiar.

Quark is a Pentium chip complete with floating point bug.

   shrunk down to 22nm running at 100MHz

But here they have a used a different operating system

   so less chances of a rapid development

Edison has a Quark onboard

When they reduced ram/storage to sub megabyte,

   there goes any thoughts of retro/nostalgia 

and development with older tools also out the door.

Curie again too small for retro, I believe was a shrunken 486

  unfamiliar OS, new learning curve, less hackers

Joule, damn. it was a Steroid Junkie as an MCU resources galore

So I think they lost much of their opportunity with the old school

that could have been what they needed to keep development going

But the rest of their normal development continues as it did

I'll probably look for Edisons to go on sale, modules and mini-breakouts

I somehow always felt the oversized Arduino board defeated their

  whole accomplishment of miniaturizing the chip so small

Not that 5V compatibility wasn't a good idea over 1.8V logic

  But I was drawn to where a "server" could be put into tight spaces

Just read a bit more on the D2000

 - Pentium but without Floating Point Unit

 - 32MHz clock

 - 8K Sram + 32K Flash 

It's now been so watered down ... not for me.


I agree, Intel seems to have lost its ideologists. This is somewhat similar to what happened at IBM a while ago.

I still hope that they will offer some substitute to Edison.

Joule is a marvel, I've got a 570x, but it isn't cost-efficient and also needs to be cooled with a fan, which is not always something you can provide.

If you do find some worthy alternative to Edison, I'll be thankful if you would let me know.

Also, I've started a new thread to continue the discussion on the multiple 0xFF transmission issue.
