The SHTC3 is a digital humidity and temperature sensor designed especially for high-volume consumer electronics applications. This sensor is strictly designed to overcome conventional limits for size, power consumption, and performance to price ratio in order to fulfill current and future requirements. Sensirion’s CMOSens® technology offers a complete sensor system on a single chip, consisting of a capacitive humidity sensor, a bandgap temperature sensor, analog and digital signal processing, A/D converter, calibration data memory, and a digital communication interface supporting I 2C fast mode. The ultra-small, 2 × 2 × 0.75 mm3 DFN package enables applications in even the most limited of spaces.
The sensor covers a humidity measurement range of 0 to 100 %RH and a temperature measurement range of -40 °C to 125 °C with a typical accuracy of ±2 %RH and ±0.2°C. The broad supply voltage of 1.62 V to 3.6 V and an energy budget below 1 µJ per measurement make the SHTC3 suitable for mobile or wireless applications powered by batteries. With the industry-proven quality and reliability of Sensirion’s humidity and temperature sensors and constant accuracy over a large measurement range, the SHTC3 offers best performance-to-price ratio. Tape and reel packaging together with suitability for standard SMD assembly processes make the SHTC3 predestined for high-volume applications.
