CALIBRATING FOR IMPROVED ACCURACY
There are many temperature monitoring applications that require better than 0.5°C accuracy over a limited
temperature range. Knowing the offset of a temperature sensor at a given temperature in conjunction with the
average temperature span (slope) error over a fixed range makes it possible to achieve this improved accuracy.
The TMP112 has three distinct slope regions that conservatively approximate its inherent curvature:
1. Slope1 applies over –40°C to +25°C
2. Slope2 applies over +25°C to +85°C
3. Slope3 applies over +85°C to +125°C
These slopes are defined in Table 14 and shown in Figure 19.It is important to note that each slope is increasing
with respect to 25°C.
