Automotive Grade, 0.5°C Accurate 2-pin Temperature Sensor with a Pulse Train Interface - LMT01-Q1


Automotive Grade, 0.5°C Accurate 2-pin Temperature Sensor with a Pulse Train Interface



The LMT01-Q1 is a high-accuracy, 2-pin temperature sensor with an easy-to-use pulse count interface which makes it an ideal digital replacement for PTC or NTC thermistors both on and off board in automotive, industrial, and consumer markets. The LMT01-Q1 digital pulse count output and high accuracy over a wide temperature range allow pairing with any MCU without concern for integrated ADC quality or availability, while minimizing software overhead. TI’s LMT01-Q1 achieves flat ±0.5°C accuracy with very fine resolution (0.0625°C) over a wide temperature range of –20°C to 90°C without system calibration or hardware/software compensation.

Unlike other digital IC temperature sensors, LMT01-Q1’s single wire interface is designed to directly interface with a GPIO or comparator input, thereby simplifying hardware implementation. Similarly, the LMT01's integrated EMI suppression and simple 2-pin architecture makes it ideal for on-board and off-board temperature sensing. The LMT01-Q1 offers all the simplicity of analog NTC or PTC thermistors with the added benefits of a digital interface, wide specified performance, EMI immunity, and minimum processor resources.
