The TMP236EVM evaluation kit is a plug and play system to test and evaluate the TMP236 analog temperature sensor. The EVM utilizes a USB interface for control and data streaming, and can be to plugged into a PC USB port. With the simple GUI, temperature measurements can be streamed within a matter of seconds after the EVM is attached to a PC and the GUI is started. The EVM hosts a MSP430F5528 microcontroller which acts as a bridge between the PC USB interface and the analog interface to the TMP236. The sensor section of the PCB may be separated from the main PCB to support prototyping in a system where the sensor is remotely located from the host controller. The TMP236EVM does not require calibration, nor does it require any software programming - only the TMP236 EVM GUI must be installed. The GUI displays realtime streaming of temperature measurements. The EVM also supports a second sensing channel for comparison purposes. Temperature data can be logged and exported in CSV format.
