The LM95231 is a precision dual remote diode temperature sensor (RDTS) that uses Texas Instruments' TruTherm technology. The 2-wire serial interface of the LM95231 is compatible with SMBus 2.0. The LM95231 can sense three temperature zones, it can measure the temperature of its own die as well as two diode connected transistors. The LM95231 includes digital filtering and an advanced input stage that includes analog filtering and TruTherm technology that reduces processor-to-processor non-ideality spread. The diode connected transistors can be a 'thermal diode' as found in Intel and AMD processors or can simply be a diode connected MMBT3904 transistor. TruTherm technology allows accurate measurement of 'thermal diodes' found on small geometry processes, 90nm and below. The LM95231 supports user selectable thermal diode non-ideality of either a Pentium 4 processor on 90nm process or 2N3904.
