PIC12F1822 + LCD + DHT22 (AM2302) Sensor Circuit:
PIC12F1822 DHT22 sensor and 1602 LCD circuit

PIC12F1822 microcontroller internal oscillator is used and MCLR pin function is disabled in the software.
To see how to use 74HC164 or CD4094 instead of 74HC595 go to the link above.
The DHT22 (AM2302 – RHT03) sensor has 4 pins:
VCC : Positive power supply (+5V)
DATA : Sensor data input and output
NC : Not connected terminal
GND : Ground (0V)
A pull-up resistor must be added between the sensor data pin and VCC (+5V) pin as shown in the circuit schematic (4.7K ~ 10K).

PIC12F1822 + LCD + DHT22 (AM2302) Sensor CCS C code:
If you want to understand the code please read the DHT22 datasheet.
Variables Time_out and k are used to test reading time to avoid wrong data reception and microcontroller hanging.
The microcontroller runs with its internal oscillator at 32MHz (8MHz + PLL).
