SBOS740A May 2017 – May 2019 TMP116
When the device is operating in continuous conversion mode (see the Continuous Conversion Mode (CC) section), every conversion cycle consists of an active conversion period followed by a standby period. During active conversion the device typically consumes 135 µA, and during the low-power standby period the device typically consumes 1.25 µA, as indicated in Table 1. Figure 19 shows a current consumption profile of a conversion cycle. The duration of the active conversion period and standby period can be configured using the CONV[2:0] and AVG[1:0] bits in the configuration register, thereby allowing the average current consumption of the device to be optimized based on the application requirements. Changing the conversion cycle period also affects the temperature result update rate because the temperature result register is updated at the end of every conversion or averaging cycle.
