ams announced three new ultra-low power temperature sensors for use across consumer electronics and wearables as well as health monitoring and HVAC systems.

The Austrian-based company described its new AS621X generation of sensors as based on a 1.5 mm2 wafer level scale package. The sensors rely on an industry-standard serial interface with eight address for easy prototyping, the company said in a statement on Monday.

That means the sensors are ideal for battery-operated devices, from wearables to laptops and tablets.
