Temperature sensors effectively transmit the electrical signals into data that can be used for any application.
The TMP36 is a low voltage, precision centigrade temperature sensor. It provides a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the Celsius temperature. It also doesn't require any external calibration to provide typical accuracies of ±1°C at +25°C and ±2°C over the −40°C to +125°C temperature range.
We like it because it's so easy to use: Just give the device a ground and 2.7 to 5.5 VDC and read the voltage on the Vout pin. The output voltage can be converted to temperature easily using the scale factor of 10 mV/°C.
- Operate on low voltage
- External Calibration not required
- Stable with large capacitive loads
- Less than 50 µA quiescent current
- Auto Shutdown current 0.5 µA max
- Low self-heating Qualified for automotive applications
