Tiny temperature sensors feature 1°C accuracy
Microchip’s EMC181x series of 1.8 V remote-diode temperature sensors includes one of the industry’s smallest 5-channel sensors with standard lead spacing.
The sensor family also introduces system temperature rate-of-change reporting, which provides advance warning on how the temperature of a system is fluctuating.
The EMC1812/13/14/15/33 devices monitor one internal diode and up to four externally connected temperature diodes. Internal temperature sensor accuracy is to within ±1°C from -40°C to +125°C.
