Silicon Labs Introduces New Ultra-Low-Power Temperature Sensors

Silicon Labs introduced a new family of high-precision temperature sensors offering power efficiency. Silicon Labs ultra-low-power Si705x temperature sensors consume only 195 nA (typical average current) when sampled once per second, which minimizes self-heating and enables multi-year coin cell battery operation. Unlike traditional digital temperature sensors, the Si705x devices maintain their accuracy across the full operating temperature and voltage ranges and offer four accuracy levels up to +/-0.3 °C. The sensors are ideal for HVAC, white goods, computer equipment, asset tracking, cold chain storage, industrial control and medical equipment. AEC-Q100-qualified versions are also available for automotive applications. Traditional approaches to temperature sensing that use thermistors or embedded MCU temperature sensors suffer from poor accuracy and higher power consumption. Although improved accuracy can be achieved through end-of-line calibration, this technique presents additional manufacturing costs and challenges while accuracy is still susceptible to variations in power supply voltage. In contrast, the Si705x sensors patented signal processing technology provides stable temperature accuracy over the entire operating voltage and temperature ranges without the need for costly end-of-line production calibration. In addition, the integrated low-power analog design delivers an optimal price/performance solution with up to 35 times better power efficiency than competing temperature sensor products. Available in a compact 3 mm x 3 mm DFN package, the Si705x sensors feature an industry-standard I2C interface for easy configuration. Each device provides up to 14-bit temperature resolution for high-precision measurement, and the -40 to +125 °C temperature range is suitable for consumer, industrial and automotive applications. With a low 1.9 V minimum power supply voltage, the Si705x sensors can be connected directly to a battery without the need for an external voltage regulator. The Si705x temperature sensors are the newest members of Silicon Labs growing portfolio of environmental and optical sensor products for the Internet of Things, consumer and industrial automation markets. Silicon Labs sensor portfolio includes relative humidity (RH) and temperature sensors, proximity and ambient light sensors, UV index and ambient light sensors, and capacitive touch sensors, as well as isolated ac current sensors and high-side dc current sensors for power management applications. The Si705x temperature sensors are pin-compatible and software-compatible with Silicon Labsâ popular Si70xx RH and temperature sensor family. This compatibility enables existing RH sensor designs and software to be eused easily for temperature-only applications. Samples and production quantities of Silicon Labs Si705x temperature sensors are available now. Si705x sensor pricing in 10,000-unit quantities begins at $0.61. The Si705x USB dongle evaluation kits, priced at $49, streamline Si705x sensor evaluation and application development. The Si705x USB dongle kits are supported by a Windows-based GUI that simplifies control of the Si705x sensors and temperature measurements. A variety of source code and driver examples is available in Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio development environment.

Silicon Laboratories Inc. Announces Transition of Jon Ivester from Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations to Senior Advisor

On January 3, 2015, Silicon Laboratories Inc.’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations, Jon Ivester, transitioned from his role as an executive officer serving as Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations into a project-based non-executive officer role as a Senior Advisor. Mr. Ivester joined Silicon Laboratories in 1997 and was responsible for the company’s operations from its inception.

Silicon Labs Introduces its Next-Generation Digital TV Demodulator Family

Silicon Labs introduced its next-generation digital TV demodulator family offering expanded support for the latest satellite, terrestrial and cable standards. The new Si218x family includes the demodulators supporting the recently launched DVB-S2X specification, which adds new features and higher performance to the DVB-S2 standard. The family also expands Silicon Labs’ terrestrial demodulator portfolio with support for the Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting-Terrestrial (ISDB-T) standard prevalent in Brazil and other Latin America countries. The Si218x family meets the diverse digital TV reception requirements of TV and set-top box (STB) makers, RF network interface module (NIM) suppliers and DVD/Blu-ray recorder manufacturers worldwide. Silicon Labs offers demodulators for the global digital TV and set-top box market. Silicon Labs’ single-chip Si218x demodulators build on continuous digital demodulation architectural enhancements to support emerging and established standards for terrestrial (DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T), satellite (DVB-S/S2/DSS/S2X) and cable (DVB-C/C2, ITU-T J83 Annex A/B/C) reception. The single-channel Si218x and dual-channel Si218x2 families enable TV and STB manufacturers to simplify complex video front-end designs and to address combinations of multiple broadcast standards with a single field-proven, low-power and cost-effective demodulator solution. In addition to complying with ISDB-T, the Si218x family supports the new DVB-S2X extension to the DVB-S2 standard for satellite reception. Demodulators supporting DVB-S2X enable developers to future-proof their TV and STB designs with advanced channel-recovery features and technology to support the upcoming roll-out of 4K Ultra HD TV reception based on high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) capabilities. Already embedded in many TV SoC devices, HEVC decoding technology, combined with DVB-S2X reception, is becoming a 'must-have' feature for the TV market. The single-channel Si218x demodulators use the same 7 mm x 7 mm QFN-48 package as Silicon Labs’ previous demodulator family, providing pin-to-pin compatibility, simplifying board design, and minimizing cost and research and development. The dual-channel Si218x2 demodulators, also pin compatible in an 8 mm x 8 mm QFN-68 package, feature an innovative on-chip crossbar architecture that enables system designers to address a wide range of multi-receiver applications with efficient, cost-effective solutions. The Si218x and Si218x2 demodulators share the same API software, enabling customers to expand and adapt their application software to these new demodulators and upgrade their TV and STB products to ISDB-T and the latest digital video broadcast standards. In addition to introducing the Si218x/8x2 family, Silicon Labs has updated its existing, Si216x/6x2 DVB demodulator family to deliver new performance enhancements and support the DVB-S2X standard. When combined with Silicon Labs’ TV tuners, the Si216x and Si218x demodulators help TV manufacturers simplify their designs with the performance video front-end solutions from RF to baseband.
