Impressive Precision

Press release date: May 01, 2014

At Sensor+Test 2014, Sensirion will present its latest temperature sensor, the STSC1, proving once again that high measurement accuracy can be combined with an extremely attractive price-performance ratio. The latest generation of temperature sensors features high accuracy, low power consumption and minimal size.

Sensirion’s sensor family is growing. The STSC1 temperature sensor will be available from summer 2014 and has the potential to build on the success of the SHTC1 humidity and temperature sensor, which has impressed the market a million times over. Its successor will inherit in particular its high-precision temperature measurement and remarkable value for money.

The STSC1 focuses on applications that require very precise temperature measurement. It is suitable for consumer electronics, Internet of Things and smart home applications, as well as for data loggers and thermostats. With compact dimensions of just 2 mm x 2 mm x 0.8 mm, low power consumption and supply voltage of 1.8 volts, it clearly fulfills industry requirements. In addition to its easy handling, the STSC1 provides a fully calibrated and linearized digital signal to a microcontroller.

Its good genes are also apparent in its application: the STSC1 measures temperatures from -40 °C to 125 °C with a typical accuracy of +/- 0.3 °C. The fully calibrated sensor features an I2C interface and is reflow-solderable. It is suitable for standardized industrial series production of electronic devices and can be successfully integrated into complex applications. Sensirion supports its customers with application expertise gained from many years of experience with millions of sensors.
