Hi. We are using a TMP006 temperature sensor. It says in the spec (Configuration Register) that it can initiate a single conversion. Other than that it only says the MOD[2:0] bits can be set to
000 = Power-down
111 = Sensor and ambient continuous conversion (MOD)
On the TMP006EVM I have it has a Sensor and Ambient One-Shot option.
Is there a single shot conversion cycle?
Writing MOD[2:0] = 001 will initiate a single-shot conversion. However these bits do not reset, so in order to trigger a subsequent single-shot conversion you will have to write 000 followed by another 001 when you want the next conversion to execute.
