Sensirion announces STS3x digital temperature sensor

March 7, 2016 - Sensirion announces STS3x digital temperature sensor that provides high accuracy of +/– 0.3°C over an extensive temperature range.

The STS3x comes in a tiny eight-pin DFN pack-age measuring only 2.5 × 2.5 mm2 with a height of 0.9 mm. Its tiny size and the wide supply voltage range of 2.4 V to 5.5 V allow for integration in a great variety of applications.

The sensor has a fast start-up and response time, and its functionality includes enhanced signal processing, two distinctive and user selectable I2C addresses and communication speeds of up to 1 MHz. The STS3x temperature sensor is calibrated to provide a linearized, digital output that is compensated for supply voltage instabilities. Qualification is based on JESD 47, with a dedicated automotive qualification plan certified according to AEC Q100. The alert option with definable temperature set points enables using the sensor as a watchdog and can thus strongly optimize overall power consumption.

The STS3x sensor is ideal for demanding data logger and temperature compensation applications. Due to its high accuracy, body temperature measurement in wearable devices and temperature calibration in automotive components are among the main target applications. In addition, a multitude of HVAC devices will benefit in terms of precision, power savings, and reliability when accounting for highly accurate temperature data.
