The LMT85 is aprecision CMOS temperature sensor with ±0.4°C typical accuracy (±2.7°C maximum) and a linear analogoutput voltage that is inversely proportional to temperature. The 1.8-Vsupply voltage operation, 5.4-µA quiescent current, and 0.7-ms power-on time enable effectivepower-cycling architectures to minimize power consumption for battery-powered applications such asdrones and sensor nodes. The LMT85LPG through-hole TO-92Spackage fast thermal time constant supports off-board time-temperature sensitive applications suchas smoke and heat detectors. The accuracyover the wide operating range and other features make the LMT85 an excellent alternative to thermistors.
