Enables contactless temperature measurement in portable & consumer electronic applications
Developed through Texas Instruments’ ( TI’s) expertise in MEMS technology, the TMP006 is the first of a new class of ultra-small, low power, and low cost passive infrared temperature sensors.
It has 90% lower power consumption and is more than 95% smaller than existing solutions, making contactless temperature measurement possible in completely new markets and applications.
Key features and benefits
* Complete single-chip digital solution, including integrated MEMS thermopile sensor, signal conditioning, ADC and local temperature reference
* The first thermopile designed for portable applications, thanks to an ultra-thin (0.625 max) profile
* Low power design extends the life of battery powered applications.
Consumer Electronics: Improves performance and safety. Enables new user applications.
Energy/ Industrial/ Communications: Enables smaller and lower power products.
- Thermostats/ HVAC
- NDIR: CO2 gas detection
- Food & Medical safety
- Power supplies & power amplifiers
