Thanks for the correction.  (I've been using the DS18S20 in another project 
and forgot to switch my head back to the right chip.)

I have data sheets for the DS1620 from 053105 and 072099.  The text on the 
fancy temperature conversion looks the same.

The difference might be at the command/register level.  I took a quick scan 
and didn't see any differences.

Is 072099 old enough?  Does anybody know what the critical differences is?

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
