open-in-new Find other Digital temperature sensors


The LM83 is a digital temperature sensor with a 2 wire serial interface that senses the voltage and thus the temperature of three remote diodes using a Delta-Sigma analog-to-digital converter with a digital over-temperature detector. The LM83 accurately senses its own temperature as well as the temperature of three external devices, such as Pentium II® Processors or diode connected 2N3904s. The temperature of any ASIC can be detected using the LM83 as long as a dedicated diode (semiconductor junction) is available on the die. Using the SMBus interface a host can access the LM83's registers at any time. Activation of a T_CRIT_A# output occurs when any temperature is greater than a programmable comparator limit, T_CRIT. Activation of an INT# output occurs when any temperature is greater than its corresponding programmable comparator HIGH limit.

The host can program as well as read back the state of the T_CRIT register and the four T_HIGH registers. Three state logic inputs allow two pins (ADD0, ADD1) to select up to 9 SMBus address locations for the LM83. The sensor powers up with default thresholds of 127°C for T_CRIT and all T_HIGHs. The LM83 is pin for pin and register compatible with the LM84 as well as the Maxim MAX1617 and the Analog Devices ADM1021.
