MEMS device revolutionises non-contact temperature sensing

A new MEMS device from Texas Instruments promises to make non-contact IR temperature sensing much easier and less expensive than existing methods. The TMP006 is a complete single-chip, passive IR temperature sensor with integrated MEMS thermopile, signal conditioning circuitry, 16-bit ADC, local temperature and voltage references, and both I2C and SMBus digital interfaces, all in a chip measuring 1.6 x 1.6 mm.
