Low-Power Analog Temperature Sensor in SC70 Package

Low-Power Analog Temperature Sensor in an SC-70 Package


The MAX6605 precision, low-power, analog output temperature sensor is available in a 5-pin SC70 package. The device has a +2.7V to +5.5V supply voltage range and 10µA supply current over the -55°C to +125°C temperature range. For the -40°C to +105°C temperature range, the supply voltage can go as low as +2.4V. Accuracy is ±1°C at TA = +25°C and ±3°C from 0°C to +70°C.

The MAX6605 output voltage is dependent on its die temperature and has a slope of 11.9mV/°C and an offset of 744mV at 0°C. The output typically shows only +0.4°C of nonlinearity over the -20°C to +85°C temperature range.
