IC linearises temperature sensors with 0.1°C accuracy

Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2983, a digital temperature measurement IC which directly digitises RTDs, thermocouples, thermistors and external diodes with 0.1°C accuracy and 0.001°C resolution.

An analogue front end combines low noise and low offset buffered A/D converters with all the necessary excitation and control circuits for each sensor. Measurements are performed under the control of a digital engine combining all the algorithms and ...

Single cell battery charger for auto applications

Intersil has announced the ISL78692, a 4.1V single cell battery charger designed to extend the life of Li-ion batteries in automotive emergency call systems. The ISL78692 battery charger has a lower leakage current – said to be 3µA – than competing solutions, allowing the backup battery to remain charged for a longer period. Lower charging voltage also extends battery life, whilst the device's small footprint reduces total solution size.
