Temperature Indicator Module

This family of devices is equipped with a temperature circuit designed to measure the operating temperature of the silicon die. The temperature indicator module provides a temperature-dependent voltage that can be measured by the internal Analog-to-Digital Converter.

The circuit’s range of operating temperature falls between -40℃ and +125℃. The circuit may be used as a temperature threshold detector or a more accurate temperature indicator, depending on the level of calibration performed. A one-point calibration allows the circuit to indicate a temperature closely surrounding that point. A two-point calibration allows the circuit to sense the entire range of temperature more accurately.

Microchip tests each device during manufacturing and provides the gain, offset, and Temperature Indicator ADC values at 90°C, for both High and Low Range operation.
