Hello all,

I am trying to read temperature from DS18B20 sensor using the OneWire protocol (non parasitic) and a PIC18F4550 (Aptinex development board with a built-in DS18B20). I've read both OneWire and DS18B20 datasheets, then I tried to look up some example codes just to understand how it all works, but the more I tried to understand the main function part, the more confused I got. I think I understand how reset, write and read functions work (clear explanations in the datasheet), but the part that confuses me the most is how to actually read data from the sensor. Below is a code that I found somewhere on the net, and after I build it, the result is in the pic. Also, after 3 seconds, the screen goes blank. The LCD module is 100% working. I really do not understand what is going on this part:

tempL = read();
tempH = read();

tempL >>= 4;
tempH <<= 4;
tempH += tempL;
tempL = DEC2BCD(tempH);

Could someone please give any insights what is going on in that part and why the outcome is like that. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Code:
#define _XTAL_FREQ 8000000

#include <xc.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include "delay.h"
#include "LCD_4bit_config.h"

#define _XTAL_FREQ 8000000

#define DEC2BCD(dec) (((dec / 10) << 4) + (dec % 10))

#define Skip_ROM 0xCC                // 0b11001100
#define Convert_temperature 0x44    // 0b01000100
#define Read_scratchpad 0xBE            // 0b10111110
#define Write_scratchpad 0x4E

#define Data_pin LATB0

Finally I had a break-trough (at least I think I have), when I decided to take baby steps and : 1. Read a presence pulse; 2. Read device family code; 3. Attempt to read temperature data. So far points 1 and 2 were accomplished successfully, I was able to read the presence pulse (0) and a family code (0x28). But the last point, I am still struggling bad. I understand that in order to read temperature values, I first need to write a command to convert temperature (0x44), then reset the OneWire, give a 0.75s delay for the conversion to be completed, and then write to the scratchpad 0xBE to read from the register. I've tried combining the codes I found in maxim website and as well some other codes I found all over the web. LCD now displays Temperature: 11, when my room temperature is currently ~27 degrees C. Please can someone check my codes to see whether there is an issue somewhere? Thanks!
