We have developed some RTD or thermocouple based temperature sensors, we are thinking to design some new sensors. Some question for AD temperature related products.
1. What is the difference between digital temperature sensor and analog temperature sensor?
2. For those IC datasheet, the measurement range is below +170 Degree, if the measurement point reach 200 Degree accidentally, will those sensor get damaged or just give wrong readings?
3. If we use the sensor to measure metal surface temperature, how to put the IC on the metal surface to make it more accuracy?
Thanks for your reply. Two questions for ADT7312:
1.The temperature is lower than +100C in our application, if the temperature reaches higher than +200 or even +300C accidentally, it will not get damaged because It is bare die, the only problem is the reading is incorrect, am I right?
2.Availability: I check with the ADT7312 web page, no price is on the list, is this part only for high volume customer? how much is the price?
