Universal Temperature Measurement IC Linearizes Sensors To 0.1°C Conformity

Universal Temperature Measurement IC Linearizes Sensors To 0.1°C Conformity
Linear Technology Corp.

The LTC2986 high performance digital temperature measurement IC directly digitizes any combination of thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors and external diodes with 0.1°C conformity and 0.001°C resolution. Compared to the LTC2983 and LTC2984, the device adds three operating modes and reduces the number of analog inputs from 20 to 10 channels. The added operating modes provide better support for external overvoltage protection resistors that are shared between multiple sensor types, powered temperature sensors with analog outputs, and other non-temperature related sensors such as pressure or other voltage output sensors. The LTC2986 is available in commercial, industrial and automotive versions, supporting operating temperature ranges from 0°C to +70°C,–40°C to +85°C, and –40°C to +125°C, respectively. The LTC2986 comes in a 7 mm x 7 mm LQFP-48 package and is pin-compatible with the LTC2983 and LTC2984. Pricing starts at $16.56 each/1,000.
