Texas Instruments LM95172 13- to 16-bit 200ºC digital temperature sensor features a very linear sigma-delta analog-to-digital converter, high accuracy, fast conversion rates, and extremely low output noise. TI LM95172 digital temperature sensor offers an operating temperature as low as -40ºC and optimized accuracy from 120ºC to 200ºC, making it ideal for high-temperature applications. LM95172 can be programmed to operate from 13 bits (0.0625°C per LSB) to 16 bits (0.0078125°C per LSB) resolution. This TI temperature sensor powers up in 35ms, the fastest conversion time, when the temperature output is set at 13-bit resolution. When in 14-, 15-, or 16-bit mode, the least significant bit in the 16-bit temperature register toggles after the completion of each conversion. This bit may be monitored to verify that the conversion is complete. The high noise immunity of the Serial I/O output makes it ideal for use in challenging electromagnetic environments.
