NICE TO FIND YOU ALL HERE!!!



I am using ad7151 for capacitive sensing application..

I use it in fixed mode for continuous sampling.

Ineed to achieve  better response over broad temperature variations during operation.
it is obvious that there is an incorporated temperature sensor in the ad7151 .


As mentioned in data sheet  the chip makes temperature compensation for adaptive mode operation.


Is there any way to read the value of the temperature via i2c bus?

Is there any register in the ad7151 containing the temperature information?


There is no such information on datasheets!

I need this info in order to avoid add an external temperature sensor that would require
pcb redesign.


Thank you all in advance!!!
