Temperature Sensor (Analog Output)


Product icon for Temperature Sensor (Analog Output)

Product Overview

The agileTsense GP Temperature Sensor is a traditional ΔVBE temperature sensor that amplifies the difference between two VBE voltages, and converts the result to a single-ended signal. This temperature sensor can be used with the agileADC in order to provide a digital output with an overall relative accuracy of +/-0.25°C. On modern SoCs, thermal management is critical for detection of security attacks and optimization of power, performance and area.

Agile Analog designs are based on tried and tested architectures to ensure reliability and functionality. Our design methodology is programmatic, systematic and repeatable leading to analog IP that is more verifiable, more robust and more reliable. Our methodology also allows us to quickly re-target our IP to different process options. We support all the major foundries including TSMC, GlobalFoundries, Samsung Foundry and SMIC as well as other IC foundries and manufacturers.
