Microchip Technology recently unveiled a new six-member family of temperature sensor ICs called the EMC118X. Microchip claims that their latest offering is the world's first family of temp sensors with 1.8V SMBus and I2C communications, which is required for interfacing to the latest generation of smartphone, tablet and PC chipsets. Using an advanced sample-frequency-hopping filter, the company's latest sensor enables temperature-monitoring traces of up to 203.2mm in noisy environments with accurate readings.

The EMC118X family serves a broad range of applications in the mobile, commercial and embedded computing markets, by combining the above features with options for dual, triple and quad temperature monitoring, along with hardwired system-shutdown settings that can't be overridden by software.

The EMC1182 is offered in 8-pin DFN and TDFN packages. The EMC1183, EMC1184, EMC1187 and EMC1188 are all available in a 10-pin DFN package. The EMC1186 is offered in an 8-pin TDFN package.
