Sensirion, a manufacturer of humidity and temperature sensor, has released the new STS3x. The new STS3x temperature sensor is based on the same chip as the SHT3x humidity sensors and comes in a tiny eight-pin DFN package measuring only 2.5 × 2.5 mm2 with a height of 0.9 mm.
Its tiny size and the wide supply voltage range of 2.4 V to 5.5 V allow for integration in a great variety of applications. The sensor delivers outstanding performance and a remarkably high accuracy of +/–0.3°C over an extensive temperature range combined with low power consumption — an especially important consideration for battery-operated devices, the company states. It is based off of CMOSens technology, has user-selectable I2C addresses and communication seeds of up to 1MHz.
The STS3x is suited for data logger and temperature condensation applications. It can also be sued in wearable devices, automotive components and HVAC use cases.
