SNIS161D March 2000 – January 2016 LM34
Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
The features of the LM34 device make it suitable for many general temperature sensing applications. Multiple package options expand on flexibility of the device.
|Accuracy at 77°F||±2°F|
|Accuracy from –50°F to 300°F||±3°F|
|Temperature Slope||10 mV/°F|
Because the LM34 is a simple temperature sensor that provides an analog output, design requirements related to layout are more important than electrical requirements (see Layout).
|VOUT = 10 mV/°F (TA+3°F) from 3°F to 100°F|
