1-Wire Digital Thermometer with Sequence Detect and PIO

First 1-Wire Digital Temperature Sensor with Chain-Mode Function and GPIO

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The DS28EA00 is a digital thermometer with 9-bit (0.5°C) to 12-bit (1/16°C) resolution and alarm function with nonvolatile (NV), user-programmable upper and lower trigger points. Each DS28EA00 has its unique 64-bit registration number that is factory-programmed into the chip. Data is transferred serially through the 1-Wire® protocol, which requires only one data line and a ground for communication. The improved 1-Wire front end with hysteresis and glitch filter enables the DS28EA00 to perform reliably in large 1-Wire networks. Unlike other 1-Wire thermometers, the DS28EA00 has two additional pins to implement a sequence detect function. This feature allows the user to discover the registration numbers according to the physical device location in a chain, e.g., to measure the temperature in a storage tower at different height. If the sequence detect function is not needed, these pins can be used as general-purpose input or output. The DS28EA00 can derive the power for its operation directly from the data line ("parasite power"), eliminating the need for an external power supply.
