On-chip diodes provide temperature-sensing capability. Enable the internal temperature sensor by setting SYS_MON[2:0] = 010 in the system control register (09h). The temperature sensor outputs a voltage proportional to the device temperature as specified in the Electrical Characteristics table.
When measuring the internal temperature sensor, the analog inputs are disconnected from the ADC and the output voltage of the temperature sensor is routed to the ADC for measurement using the selected PGA gain, data rate, and voltage reference. If enabled, PGA gain must be limited to 4 for the temperature sensor measurement to remain within the allowed absolute input voltage range of the PGA. As a result of the low device junction-to-PCB thermal resistance (RθJB), the internal device temperature closely tracks the printed circuit board (PCB) temperature.
