Interfacing the TC1047A Analog Output Temperature Sensor to a PICmicro® Microcontroller
Jim Lepkowski and Steve Bible
Analog output silicon temperature sensors offer an easy-to-use alternative to traditional temperature sensors, such as thermistors. The TC1047A offers many system-level advantages, including the integration of the temperature sensor and signal conditioning circuitry on a single chip. Analog output sensors are especially suited for embedded systems due to their linear output. This application note will discuss system integration, firmware implementation and PCB layout techniques for using the TC1047A in an embedded system.
