SBOS473I March 2009 – December 2018 TMP112
The TMP112 family features a one-shot temperature-measurement mode. When the device is in shutdown mode, writing a 1 to the OS bit begins a single temperature conversion. During the conversion, the OS bit reads 0. The device returns to the SHUTDOWN state at the completion of the single conversion. After the conversion, the OS bit reads 1. This feature is useful for reducing power consumption in the TMP112 family when continuous temperature monitoring is not required.
As a result of the short conversion time, the TMP112 family can achieve a higher conversion rate. A single conversion typically occurs for 26 ms and a read can occur in less than 20 μs. When using one-shot mode, 30 or more conversions per second are possible.
