Arduino Due and SHT20 sensor

by shedboy71

In this article we connect an SHT20 sensor to an Arduino Due

The SHT2x series consists of a low-cost version with the SHT20 humidity sensor. the SHT2x provides calibrated, linearized sensor signals in digital, I2C format. The SHT2x humidity sensor series contains a capacitive-type humidity sensor, a band-gap temperature sensor, and specialized analog and digital integrated circuits – all on a single CMOSens® chip. This yields superior sensor performance in terms of accuracy and stability as well as minimal power consumption.

Every sensor is individually calibrated and tested. Furthermore, the resolution of the SHT2x humidity sensor can be changed on command (8/12 bit up to 12/14 bit for RH/T) and a checksum helps to improve communication reliability.


  • Size: 3 x 3 x 1.1mm
  • Output: I²C digital, PWM, SDM
  • Supply voltage range: 2.1 to 3.6V
  • Energy consumption:  3.2µW (at 8 bit, 1 measurement/s)
  • RH operating range: 0 – 100%RH
  • T operating range:  -40°C to +125°C (-40°F to +257°F)
  • RH response time: 8 sec (tau63%)

We use the following library – https://github.com/DFRobot/DFRobot_SHT20

[codesyntax lang=”cpp”]

#include <Wire.h>
#include "DFRobot_SHT20.h"

DFRobot_SHT20    sht20;

void setup()
    Serial.println("SHT20 Example!");
    sht20.initSHT20();                                  // Init SHT20 Sensor
    sht20.checkSHT20();                                 // Check SHT20 Sensor

void loop()
    float humd = sht20.readHumidity();                  // Read Humidity
    float temp = sht20.readTemperature();               // Read Temperature
    Serial.print(" Temperature:");
    Serial.print(temp, 1);
    Serial.print(" Humidity:");
    Serial.print(humd, 1);




Open the serial monitor – this is what I saw
