A proportional to absolute temperature (PTAT) sensor is capable of reducing a sensing error resulted from a mismatch between circuit components. The PTAT sensor includes a control unit, a sensing unit and a calculation unit. The control unit generates a control signal. The sensing unit, comprising at least a pair of circuit components having a matching relationship, senses an absolute temperature under the first connection configuration and the second connection configuration respectively to generate a first voltage value and a second voltage value, wherein the first connection configuration and the second connection configuration are decided by interchanging the circuit connections of the pair of circuit components according to the control signal. And the calculation unit, coupled to the sensing unit, calculates a PTAT voltage value according to the first voltage value and the second voltage values.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
