TMP36 – Temperature Sensor
- High accuracy solid state temperature sensor
The TMP36 is a solid state temperature sensor giving it extremely high accuracy and long term reliability. This sensor requires no external components or calibration and is ready to use out of the box. The output voltage (middle pin) is converted to temperature with the following formula: Temp in °C = [(Vout in mV) – 500] / 10. The output voltage will range from 0.1V -40°C) to 2.0V (150°C). The output voltage responds linearly to change in temperature. To calculate temperate in °F use the following formula: (temperatureC * 9.0 / 5.0) + 32.0.
