RS-232 Powered Temperature Sensor

Posted on Jul 15, 2012

A state-of-the-art silicon temperature sensor like MAX6577 measures a remote temperature far from the host system. The temperature sensor converts this temperature into a square wave with a frequency proportional to the absolute temperature of its package, while drawing little supply current from the power source. The amplitude of the output signal is equal to the power supply of the chip, and must be sent over a cable to the host system. The use of a RS-232 interface, low-power dedicated chip enables the communication, while providing power to the sensor.
