Designed to meet the needs of IoT and personal computing applications requiring reduced power consumption and lower system voltage, the EMC181x temperature sensor family also introduces system temperature rate-of-change reporting – a feature that provides advanced warning on how the temperature of a system is fluctuating.

Monitoring temperature at multiple locations with a single, integrated temperature sensor, says the company, reduces board complexity and simplifies design. The EMC181x temperature sensor family offers a variety of remote channels at 1.8V operation to fit different design needs, ranging from two to five channels.

The family is suited for applications migrating from 3.3V systems to lower voltage rails, such as battery operated IoT applications, personal computing devices, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), and graphics processing units (GPUs). In addition, the EMC181x family is register and voltage compatible with the company’s 3.3V EMC14xx temperature sensors.

The three-channel sensor is available in an 8-pin 2 x 2-mm footprint, while the five-channel device is available in a 10-pin 2 x 2.5-mm footprint. All of the devices are available today for sampling and volume production. Pricing begins at $0.44 per 10,000 units for the EMC1812T two-channel sensor.

An evaluation board (ADM00773) is available that provides everything needed to demonstrate the 1.8V three-channel two-wire EMC1833 temperature sensor and gives functional insight into the other EMC181x family members.
