Digital Thermometers and Thermostats with SPI/3-Wire Interface
The MAX31722/MAX31723 digital thermometers and thermostats with an SPI™/3-wire interface provide temperature readings that indicate the device temperature. No additional components are required; the devices are truly temperature-to-digit
al converters. Temperature readings are communicated from the device over an SPI interface or a 3-wire serial interface. The choice of interface is selectable by the user. For applications that require greater temperature resolution, the user can adjust the readout resolution from 9 to 12 bits. This is particularly useful in applications where thermal runaway conditions must be detected quickly. The thermostat has a dedicated open-drain output (active-low TOUT). Two thermostat operating modes, comparator and interrupt, control thermostat operation based on user-defined nonvolatile trip points (THIGH and TLOW). Both devices feature a 1.7V to 3.7V supply rail.
