Remote Diode Temp Sensor
What Is A Remote Diode Temperature Sensor?
A Remote Diode Temperature Sensor implements an external “diode” to measure temperature.
Remote Diode Temperature Sensor Applications
- Common in desktop, laptop, and servers
- Automotive infotainment
- Gaming consoles
- Medical equipment
- Thermistor replacement
Block Diagram of a Typical Temperature Sensing System
Temperature can be derived from two voltage measurements at two different forward currents.
Diode Measurement EMC1833
357 Ω resistor from Diode Anode (DP) to Diode Cathode (DN).
Minimizing Form Factor
Many applications require a multi-zone temperature measurement.
