ec77ic317a.jpgTexas Instruments, Inc. announces an integrated ±1C maximum remote junction temperature sensor and local temperature sensor that are designed to monitor thermal diodes found in CPUs, microprocessors, graphics processing units and FPGAs. The TMP411 features programmable series resistance cancellation and diode non-ideality correction which simplify and remove the process of individual processor resistance calibration commonly associated with remote diode monitoring. The device provides thermal system management for a range of applications such as industrial controllers, servers, desktop and notebook computers and medical equipment. Additional applications include central office telecom equipment, LCD/DLP/LCOS projectors, storage area networks and processor/FPGA temperature monitoring. For reduced power consumption, it can be put into sleep mode reducing current consumption to 10 OhmA.
