combination of one of the industry’s highest accuracy silicon temperature sensors with the MCP9808’s wide range of features provides the flexibility for designers to optimise systems for high accuracy over a wide range of temperatures. These applications include thermostats operating at -20 to +45°C; personal computers operating at +85°C and industrial or automotive applications which have an operating temperature of up to +125°C.
In addition, many applications can benefit from reduced energy consumption via accurate temperature monitoring and control that enables more efficient operation. With its shutdown and temperature monitoring/alert features, the MCP9808 can help to adjust the real-time power utilisation of applications ranging from residential HVAC systems to industrial equipment. Specifically, its shutdown feature reduces power consumption in both line- and battery-powered systems. The on-chip over/under temperature monitor can improve system performance through thermal optimisation. Finally, the MCP9808’s critical-temperature alert can increase the system’s life by preventing harmful operating temperatures.
The MCP9808 is available today for samples and volume production, in 8-pin MSOP and 2x3 mm DFN packages.
