I am new to electronics and the basics are rather beyond me. Excuse me if I ask a simple question.

I understand that usually, Arduino adapters are not compatible with Raspberry Pi, but this looks like it could be.

I have a Temperature Sensor - Waterproof (DS18B20) that I want to connect to a Raspberry Pi 4B.

Can I use this adapter for Arduino that has the pull-up resister built into the adapter and connect the sensor to the Raspberry Pi?

I want to avoid using a pull-up resister and a breadboard arrangement.

    If you power it from 3.3V you should have no problems.

The module has a pull to Vcc. So Vcc will be applied to the data GPIO. A Pi GPIO will be destroyed by 5 volts. That means you must power the unit with 3.3 volts rather than 5 volts.
