Looking to scavenge a tmp36 off of some fried electronics, would anybody have any leads on where to look for this type of sensor. I normally wouldn't mind to buy one, but I live in a pretty remote part of the world and don't really want to order one in. Recommendations for any Arduino compatible sensor would be good as well.

If you are remote you can use a diode as a temperature sensor. ~2mV/C, you'd have to calibrate it yourself. Drive it with a current source ~10uA and read the voltage. I guess you might want a bit of gain to get the voltage up to what the aruino wants. (Does it have a low voltage ADC?)
