The series’ performance-cost ratio makes these sensors suitable for automotive and medical applications, and the SMT-compatible package enables the sensors to be used in high volume applications for on-circuit temperature control. Designed with ease-of-use and flexibility in mind, these fully-calibrated sensors come in three different data output options:
- TSYS02D has I 2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit) for integration into digital interface bus systems.
- TSYS02P has PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for integration into simple control units.
- TSYS02S has SDM (Sigma Delta Modulation) for integration into analogue circuitries.
16-bit temperature sensing resolution combined with the low power and highly accurate characteristics make these sensors cost-effective replacements for thermistors, NTCs (negative temperature coefficients) and RTDs (resistance temperature detectors). Available in a compact TDFN8 surface mount package, the TSYS02 measures 2.5 x 2.5 mm, while drawing a maximum of 12.5 µA. Operating temperature range is -40°C to +125°C. Every TSYS02 is factory-calibrated to provide a high accuracy of ±0.2°C. Custom calibration is also available to meet specific application needs. Pricing for a TSYS02 is $1.85 (10,000).
