Abstract

There is a relatively large number of published monolithic temperature sensors. The most typicals are: the metal or silicon thermoresistors, pn junctions and bipolar transistors exploiting the temperature dependent forward voltage [1]. They all have, however, typically analog output signal. This fact might causes considerable inconveniences during the implementation. As a further drawback, a part of these sensors require excess process steps in silicon IC technology. Few results are known for sensors compatible with CMOS technology. The exploitation of the diffusion-like weak-inversion current of the MOS transistors seems to be perspectivic [1]. This sensing principle gives however, analog output again.
