The MAX6646/MAX6647/MAX6649 are precise, two-channel digital temperature sensors. The devices accurately measure the temperature of their own die and a remote PN junction, and report the temperature in digital form using a 2-wire serial interface. The remote PN junction is typically the emitter-base junction of a common-collector PNP on a CPU, FPGA, or ASIC.

The 2-wire serial interface accepts standard system management bus (SMBus) write byte, read byte, send byte, and receive byte commands to read the temperature data and to program the alarm thresholds. To enhance system reliability, the MAX6646/MAX6647/MAX6649 include an SMBus timeout. A fault queue prevents the active-low ALERT and active-low OVERT outputs from setting until a fault has been detected one, two, or three consecutive times (programmable).

The MAX6646/MAX6647/MAX6649 provide two system alarms: active-low ALERT and active-low OVERT. Active-low ALERT asserts when any of four temperature conditions are violated: local overtemperature, remote overtemperature, local undertemperature, or remote undertemperature. Active-low OVERT asserts when the temperature rises above the value in either of the two active-low OVERT limit registers. The active-low OVERT output can be used to activate a cooling fan, or to trigger a system shutdown.

Measurements can be done autonomously, at the programmed conversion rate, or in a single-shot mode. The adjustable conversion rate allows optimizing supply current and temperature update rate to match system needs.

Remote accuracy is ±1°C maximum error between +60°C and +145°C with no calibration needed. The MAX6646/MAX6647/MAX6649 operate from -55°C to +125°C, and measure temperatures between 0°C and +145°C. The MAX6646/MAX6647/MAX6649 are available in an 8-pin µMAX® package.
