At ±0.1 °C accuracy over a wide temperature range, TI's single-chip digital temperature sensors help engineers reduce design complexity
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced a new temperature sensor family that offers ±0.1 °C accuracy across a wide temperature range and helps simplify system design for industrial and medical applications. The TMP117 is the first single-chip temperature sensor to offer similar performance to platinum resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) while significantly reducing design complexity and power consumption, and the TMP117M, a digital temperature sensor for medical applications, supports requirements for medical thermometers. The new devices enable engineers to more quickly develop highly accurate, ultra-low-power patient monitoring, field transmitter and metering applications.
Delivering ±0.1 °C accuracy across a wide range, with zero calibration during manufacturing, the new sensor family saves designers time and reduces production costs for systems requiring high accuracy.

TI's new digital temperature sensors enable engineers to:
Using only 6.3 µW, the TMP117 and TMP117M enable engineers to achieve longer battery life and more accurate temperature measurement in their designs.
The TMP117 and TMP117M join TI's portfolio of digital temperature sensors that enable engineers to integrate smart thermal monitoring into their designs, choosing from high-accuracy, low-power and small-package options.
Engineers can jump-start the design of their high-accuracy applications with the TMP117EVM Evaluation Board.

TMP117M digital temperature sensor for medical applications and the TMP117 digital temperature sensor are now available in volume quantities through the TI store. Both devices are available in 6-pin WSON no-lead packaging. The TMP117 digital temperature sensor and TMP117M digital temperature sensor for medical applications are priced at US$1.60 and US$2.44 respectively, in 1,000-unit quantities.
