Standalone semiconductor sensors have rarely been considered for implementation into sensor probes or assemblies due to their larger geometries. However, advances in process technology and design have led to new, tiny sensor structures with almost linear transfer functions.

In order to provide system designers with this new low-cost alternative to precision temperature measurement, this application report discusses the new LMT70 temperature sensor, whose footprint is less than 1 mm2, while its parametric performance challenges the accuracy of RTDs at cost levels lower than those of thermistors.
