TMP006 IR MEMS Temperature Sensor

The TMP006 is the industry’s first single-chip passive infrared (IR) MEMS temperature sensor. It enables contactless temperature measurement for the first time in portable consumer electronics, providing manufacturers of mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks, with the ability to accurately measure device case temperature using IR technology. This advancement over the current approach of approximating case temperature based on system temperature will enable system designers to optimize performance while providing a more comfortable user experience. The TMP006 can also be used to measure temperature outside the device, enabling new features and user applications.
