On May 19th 2020, Maxim Integrated officially released MAX31825 for mass production – a 1-Wire Temperature Sensor with ±1°C accuracy.
The MAX31825 temperature sensor provides 8-bit to 12-bit Celsius temperature measurements with accuracy better than ±1°C in the range from 0°C to +70°C, and ±1.75°C the range from -45°C to +145°C. This sensor communicates over a 1-Wire® bus that, by definition, requires only one data line (and ground) for the communication with a microcontroller. In addition, the sensor is able to derive power directly from the data line ("parasite power"), eliminating the need for an external power supply.
Each MAX31825 sensor has a unique 64-bit serial code, which allows multiple MAX31825 ICs to reside on the same 1-Wire bus. In addition, it includes two address input pins that, using an external resistor and pin-strapping, allow one of 64 different addresses to be selected to identify each sensor's physical location. Therefore, it is simple to use one microprocessor to control many devices distributed over a large area.
The MAX31825 is available in a 6-bump WLP package (1.35 x 1.08mm). The power supply voltage range is from 1.6V to 3.6V for external power supplies, and from 2.3V to 3.6V for parasite power. The operating temperature range is from -45°C to +145°C.
