TI Introduces ±0.5C Accurate Temperature Sensor for Precision Measurement Applications

DALLAS (November 8, 2006) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today announced a low-power, +/-0.5C accurate, digital-output temperature sensor. The TMP275 is well-suited for precision temperature measurement in a wide range of communications, computer, consumer, environmental, industrial and instrumentation applications. (See www.ti.com/sc06140.)

The high accuracy of the TMP275 enables more efficient thermal and power management, while low power consumption extends battery life and minimizes self-heating. The TMP275 can be configured for a wide variety of systems including battery-powered devices, HVAC equipment, notebook computers, cell phones and base stations.

The TMP275 features +/-0.5C (max) accuracy from +10C to +85C and +/-0.75C (max) accuracy from 0C to +100C. The two-wire serial interface is I2C/SMBus-compatible. Additional features include 50uA power consumption, programmable resolution (9- to 12-bit), 0.1uA shutdown current mode, excellent stability over temperature and a wide temperature range of -40C to 125C. The device allows up to eight different addresses for flexibility in interface bus designs.
