HelloI am using the LTC2983 to get temperature of a specific device designed by another team.Basically they implemented a kind of diode. They ask me to provide a 10[uA] excitation current and to measure the voltage at the diode.(I have a specific formula to convert this voltage to temperature.)
For this purpose, I implemented a LTC2983 and connect one of the channel of the LTC2983 to the diode.
I am wondering what would be the best configuration for the LTC2983.
Indeed I was thinking to configure it with "Direct ADC Measurements" but it seems (according to the datasheet) I cannot program an excitation current source in this mode.
May I ask you an advice? What would you recommend?
Apologies for missing this thread. I think I will be moving this to its proper community so someone there may better assist you.
You should configure it for diode measurements (sensor type 28). There is a specific section on page 24 of the datasheet for this .
