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?
