  • TMP112  -  +/-0.5C, 10uA, I2C Temp. Sensor in a 1.6x1.6mm SOT-563


The TMP006 and TMP006B are the first in a series of temperature sensors that measure the temperature of an object without the need to make contact with the object. This sensor uses a thermopile to absorb the passive infrared energy emitted from the object being measured and uses the corresponding change in thermopile voltage to determine the object temperature. The thermopile voltage is digitized and reported with the die temperature through serial communication.

Infrared sensor voltage range is specified from –40°C to +125°C to enable use in a wide range of applications. Low power consumption along with low operating voltage makes the device suitable for battery-powered applications. The low package height of the chip-scale format enables standard high-volume assembly methods, and can be useful where limited spacing to the object being measured is available.
