Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) announced a new six-member family of temperature sensor ICs called the EMC118X. This is the world’s first family of temp sensors with 1.8 V SMBus and I2C communications, which is required for interfacing to the latest generation of smartphone, tablet, and PC chipsets. Additionally, this integrated low-voltage I/O support reduces cost and board space because it is accomplished without an external voltage level shifter.
- Advanced sample-frequency-hopping filter enables temperature-monitoring traces of up to 8 inches in noisy environments with accurate readings.
- Options for dual, triple, and quad temperature monitoring.
- Hardwired system-shutdown settings that can’t be overridden by software.
