The PCT2075 temperature sensor from NXP offers more flexibility than ever, before yet retains backward compatibility to the industry-standard I²C-bus LM75 device for easy design-in.
This temperature sensor is highly accurate, boasting a ±1°C precision over a -25°C to +100°C range, which is where most temperature measurements are made. The resolution of this device is 11-bits, or +0.125°C, allowing you to sense minute temperature changes while the outstanding accuracy ensures a solid knowledge of the ambient conditions.
The PCT2075 also boasts a faster I²C-bus speed, up to 1 MHz, which allows for quicker response on busses with many I²C slaves. Typical industry-standard devices only permit eight devices on the same I²C-bus segment without elaborate multiplexing schemes, but the PCT2075 allows up to 27 devices on the same I²C-bus segment using only three device pins. This feature is particularly beneficial when determining temperature gradients over a surface.
The PCT2075 can be used for the following applications; System Thermal Management, Industrial Controllers, Personal Computers, Solid-State Drives, Thermostats, and LCD TVs.
