To its extensive selection of temperature sensors, Sensirion now offers the digital automobile sensor STS4xA. The STS41A-AD1B and STS41A-AW1B are the two current variants of the series, with the latter offering optional wettable flank packing to enable AOI. Additionally, the built-in on-chip heater enables sophisticated OBD, providing a functionality and plausibility diagnostic rather than only presence checks.
“More chances for our clients to take advantage of high accuracy and dependability in automotive applications are made possible by the extension of our next-generation temperature sensor line. Our STS4xA temperature sensor expands on the STS4x sensor family’s well-established base, offering a broad supply voltage range and little current consumption while retaining top performance “, according to Matthias Scharfe, product manager for Sensirion’s humidity and temperature sensors.
The sensor platform is built on the business’s CMOSens Technology and takes advantage of its rich experience in temperature sensing as well as its well-known technical know-how. The reasonably priced gadget has an I2C interface and a broad supply voltage range. The sensor may be easily integrated into numerous automotive applications due to its modest size and four-pin DFN packaging. It also passes tests for enhanced life at 85°C and 85% relative humidity.
