This paper describes an all-CMOS temperature sensor intended for RFID applications that achieves both sub-1V operation and high accuracy (±0.4°C) over a wide temperature range (-40 to 125°C). It is also an ultra-low-power design: drawing 700nA from a 0.85V supply. This is achieved by the use of dynamic threshold MOSTs (DTMOSTs) as temperature-sensing(More)
—This paper describes the design of a CMOS smart temperature sensor intended for RFID applications. The PNP-based sensor uses a digitally-assisted readout scheme that reduces the complexity and area of the analog circuitry and simplifies trimming. A key feature of this scheme is an energy efficient two-step zoom ADC that combines a coarse 5-bit SAR(More)
