LMT01: typical accuracy

Part Number: LMT01

Hey team,
in table 6.5 of the data sheet the temperature accuracy of the devices LMT01DQX and LMT01LPG is specified as min and max but also as typical. I am afraid, I don't understand the difference between typical accuracy and min/max accuracy and how to use them properly. Is the "typical accuracy" valid at 25°C and -50°C only?
Thank you in advance.

  • Dear Beatrix - 

    Welcome to E2E and thanks for posting! 

    The accuracy values listed for this device (in Section 6.5, page 5 of the LMT01 datasheet) are by temperature, going from 150ºC to -50°C, with notes 1 and 2 applying. If you click on the in-document hyperlink in note 2, it will take you to section 6.10 on page 10, where individual voltage differential measurements are graphed, over temperature. Min and max are labeled, typical is represented by the raw data plotted. You should now hopefully be able to see that the sensor will have best performance (±0.5°C, maximum) inside the +90°C to -20°C range, and typically be much more accurate than that. 

  • To add to Josh's response, min/max specifications are guaranteed across supply voltages and temperature ranges indicated at the top of the table. Typical specifications are not guaranteed, but are observed under nominal supply/temperature conditions (25C as shown in table.)
