Digital temperature sensors are one of the easiest temperature sensors to use and have either an SPI or I²C interface. They are a complete plug and play solution that provides digital output with excellent accuracy and no signal conditioning required. Their main drawback is limited temperature range (−55°C to +155°C).

All digital temperature sensors contain an internal band gap reference, a temperature sensor, and a precision analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The output is a 16-bit temperature result with a resolution of 0.0078°C and an accuracy of up to ±0.25°C without the need for calibration after the printed circuit board (PCB) soldering process.

The newest addition to this family of digital temperature sensors is the ADT7422, which is a high accuracy ±0.1°C, digital I²C temperature sensor designed to meet the clinical thermometry specification of the ASTM E1112 standards when soldered onto the final PCB.

Temperature Measurement Theory and Practical Techniques

Temperature measurement design requires a thoughtful understanding of heat transfer theory, whether those measurements are of ambient temperature or within a PCB.
