Design of CMOS Smart Temperature Sensors
This chapter discusses the various design aspects of CMOS smart temperature sensors. It describes different kinds of analog-to-digital conversion, methods for Kelvin-to-Celsius conversion, curvature correction and bus interfaces. Also an electronic interface for the temperature read-out of a single remote bipolar transistor is proposed. The design aspects that are considered most important are high uncalibrated accuracy and low power consumption.
