Model NumberMCP9700      Datasheet   


The MCP9700/9700A and MCP9701/9701A are analog temperature sensors that linearly convert temperature to analog voltage. These low-cost, low-power sensors achieve an accuracy of ±2°C (MCP9700A/9701A) at 0°C to +70°C and ±4°C (MCP9700/9701) at 0°C to +70°C, while consuming an operating current of 6 µA (typical).


  • Small analog temperature sensor
  • Available packages: sc70-5, sot-23-3, to-92-3
  • Wide temperature measurement range – 40°C to +125°C (extended temperature), – 40°C to +150°C (high temperature) (MCP9700, SOT-23-3, SC70-5 only)
  • Accuracy ±2°C (max.) 0°C to +70°C (MCP9700A/9701A), ±4°C (max.) 0°C to +70°C (MCP9700/9701)
  • Optimized for analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) 10.0 mV/°C typical (MCP9700/9700A), 19.5 mV/°C typical (MCP9701/9701A)
  • Wide operating voltage range VDD = 2.3V to 5.5V (MCP9700/9700A), VDD = 3.1V to 5.5V (MCP9701/9701A)
  • Low operating current: 6 µA (typical)
  • Optimized for driving large capacity loads
