The LTC2996 is a high accuracy temperature sensor with adjustable overtemperature and undertemperature thresholds and open drain alert outputs. It converts the temperature of an external diode sensor or its own die temperature to an analog output voltage while rejecting errors due to noise and series resistance. The measured temperature is compared against upper and lower limits set with resistive dividers. If a threshold is exceeded, the device communicates an alert by pulling low the correspondent open drain logic output.
The LTC2996 gives ±1°C accurate temperature results using commonly available NPN or PNP transistors or temperature diodes built into modern digital devices. A 1.8V reference output simplifies threshold programming and can be used as an ADC reference input.
The LTC2996 provides an accurate, low power solution for temperature monitoring in a compact 3mm × 3mm DFN package.
