STMicroelectronics Introduces Precision Digital Temperature Sensor Series

The digital sensors, in standard 8-lead TSSOP and SO-8 packages, are intended for use in any control application where a processor with an I2C bus/SMBus needs to take action based on an accurate digital reading of the local temperature, or where an alarm or interrupt is required when a preset temperature level is reached. They use a band-gap temperature sensor, with a programmable 9-bit to 12-bit sigma-delta ADC (analog to digital converter) to digitize the temperature reading to a resolution of up to 0.0625°C. The STTS75 devices are factory-calibrated and require no external components.

(January 29, 2008) Fort Myers, FL — Fox Electronics, a supplier of frequency control solutions, has announced its acquisition of Jet City Electronics Inc., a Seattle, WA-based fabless semiconductor design firm. As a wholly-owned subsidiary, Jet City will continue to provide Fox with leading-edge timing ASICs as well as with core research and development.
