The LMT87 device is a
precision CMOS temperature sensor with ±0.4°C typical accuracy (±2.7°C maximum) and a linear analog
output voltage that is inversely proportional to temperature. The 2.7-V
supply voltage operation, 5.4-µA quiescent current, and 0.7-ms power-on time enable effective
power-cycling architectures to minimize power consumption for battery-powered applications such as
drones and sensor nodes. The LMT87LPG through-hole TO-92S
package fast thermal time constant supports off-board time-temperature sensitive applications such
as smoke and heat detectors. The accuracy
over the wide operating range and other features make the LMT87 an excellent alternative to thermistors.
