The TSic 506F/503F/501F Series of temperature sensor ICs is specifically designed as a low-power solution for temperature measurement in building automation, industrial and mobile applications. With a standard calibration and an accuracy of ±0.1 K in a range of 40 K (e.g. +5 °C to +45 °C), the TSic sensors are more accurate than a class F0.1 (IEC 60751) platinum sensor in the range of 40 K. The range can be shifted up or downwards to reach a high accuracy of between -5 °C to +35 °C for example.
The TSic has a high precision bandgap reference with a PTAT (proportional-to-absolute-temperature) output, a low-power and high-precision ADC and an on-chip DSP core with an EEPROM for the precisely calibrated output signal. The TSic temperature sensor is fully calibrated, meaning no further calibration effort is required by the customer. Extended long wires (> 10 m) will not influence the accuracy.
The TSic 506F/503F/501F sensors are available with digital (ZacWire, TSic 506F), analog (0 V to 1 V, TSic 501F) or ratiometric (10 % to 90 % V+, TSic 503F) output signal. The low power consumption makes it suitable for many applications.
