Texas Instruments has introduced a new temperature sensor family that offers ±0.1°C accuracy across a wide temperature range and helps simplify system design for industrial and medical applications. The TMP117 is the first single-chip temperature sensor to offer similar performance to platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) while significantly reducing design complexity and power consumption, and the digital temperature sensor for medical applications, supports requirements for medical thermometers.
The new devices enable engineers to more quickly develop highly accurate, ultra-low power patient monitoring, field transmitter and metering applications.
Achieve high accuracy without calibration
Delivering ±0.1°C accuracy across a wide range, with zero calibration during manufacturing, the new sensor family saves designers time and reduces production costs for systems requiring high accuracy.
The TMP117 provides a direct readout of temperature, with no additional linearisation or acquisition error, and maintains accurate temperature over a wide range:
Minimise system and software complexity
TI's new digital temperature sensors enable engineers to:
Slash power usage by up to 95%
Using only 6.3µW, the TMP117 and TMP117M enable engineers to achieve longer battery life and more accurate temperature measurement in their designs.
The TMP117 and TMP117M join TI's portfolio of digital temperature sensors that enable engineers to integrate smart thermal monitoring into their designs, choosing from high accuracy, low power and small-package options.
