3 Description
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 devices are precision
integrated-circuit temperature sensors that can sense
a –40°C to 125°C temperature range using a single
positive supply. The output voltage of the device is
linearly proportional to temperature (10 mV/°C) and
has a DC offset of 500 mV. The offset allows reading
negative temperatures without the need for a
negative supply.
The ideal output voltage of the LM50 or LM50-Q1
ranges from 100 mV to 1.75 V for a –40°C to 125°C
temperature range. The LM50 and LM50-Q1 do not
require any external calibration or trimming to provide
accuracies of ±3°C at room temperature and ±4°C
over the full –40°C to 125°C temperature range.
Trimming and calibration of the LM50 and LM50-Q1
at the wafer level assure low cost and high accuracy.
The linear output, 500 mV offset, and factory
calibration of the LM50 and LM50-Q1 simplify the
circuitry requirements in a single supply environment
where reading negative temperatures is necessary.
Because the quiescent current of the LM50 and
LM50-Q1 is less than 130 µA, self-heating is limited
to a very low 0.2°C in still air.

7 Detailed Description
7.1 Overview
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 devices are precision integrated-circuit temperature sensors that can sense a –40°C to
125°C temperature range using a single positive supply. The output voltage of the LM50 and LM50-Q1 has a
positive temperature slope of 10 mV/°C. A 500-mV offset is included enabling negative temperature sensing
when biased by a single supply.
The temperature-sensing element is comprised of a delta-VBE architecture. The temperature-sensing element is
then buffered by an amplifier and provided to the VOUT pin. The amplifier has a simple class A output stage with
typical 2-kΩoutput impedance as shown in the Functional Block Diagram.

7.3 Feature Description
7.3.1 LM50 and LM50-Q1 Transfer Function
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 follow a simple linear transfer function to achieve the accuracy as listed in the Electrical
Characteristics: LM50B table and the Electrical Characteristics: LM50C and LM50-Q1 table.

8 Application and Implementation
NOTE
Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component
specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are
responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should
validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
8.1 Application Information
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 have a wide supply range and a 10 mV/°C output slope with a 500-mV DC offset.
Therefore, it can be easily applied in many temperature-sensing applications where a single supply is required
for positive and negative temperatures.
8.2 Typical Application
8.2.1 Full-Range Centigrade Temperature Sensor
Figure 12. Full-Range Centigrade Temperature Sensor Diagram(–40°C to 125°C)
8.2.1.1 Design Requirements
For this design example, use the parameters listed in Table 1 as the input parameters.
Table 1. Design Parameters
PARAMETER VALUE
Power supply voltage ±3°C (maximum)
Output impedance ±4°C (maximum)
Accuracy at 25°C 10 mV/°C
Accuracy over –40°C to 125°C 4.5 V to 10 V
Temperature slope 4 kΩ(maximum)
8.2.1.2 Detailed Design Procedure
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 are simple temperature sensors that provides an analog output. Therefore design
requirements related to layout are more important than other requirements. See Layout for more information.
8.2.1.2.1 Capacitive Loads
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 handle capacitive loading very well. Without any special precautions, the LM50 and
LM50-Q1 can drive any capacitive load. The device has a nominal 2-kΩoutput impedance (shown in Functional
Block Diagram). The temperature coefficient of the output resistors is around 1300 ppm/°C. Taking into account
this temperature coefficient and the initial tolerance of the resistors the output impedance of the device will not
exceed 4 kΩ. In an extremely noisy environment it may be necessary to add some filtering to minimize noise
pickup. TI recommends adding a 0.1-µF capacitor between +VS and GND to bypass the power supply voltage,

as shown in Figure 14. It may also be necessary to add a capacitor from VOUT to ground. A 1-µF output
capacitor with the 4-kΩoutput impedance will form a 40-Hz low-pass filter. Since the thermal time constant of the
LM50 and LM50-Q1 is much slower than the 25-ms time constant formed by the RC, the overall response time of
the device will not be significantly affected. For much larger capacitors this additional time lag will increase the
overall response time of the LM50 and LM50-Q1.

9 Power Supply Recommendations
In an extremely noisy environment, it may be necessary to add some filtering to minimize noise pickup. TI
recommends that a 0.1-µF capacitor be added from +VS to GND to bypass the power supply voltage, as shown
in Figure 14.
10 Layout
10.1 Layout Guidelines
The LM50 and LM50-Q1 can be applied easily in the same way as other integrated-circuit temperature sensors.
The device can be glued or cemented to a surface and its temperature will be within about 0.2°C of the surface
temperature.
This presumes that the ambient air temperature is almost the same as the surface temperature; if the air
temperature were much higher or lower than the surface temperature, the actual temperature of the LM50 or
LM50-Q1 die would be at an intermediate temperature between the surface temperature and the air temperature.
To ensure good thermal conductivity the backside of the LM50 and LM50-Q1 die is directly attached to the GND
pin. The lands and traces to the device will, of course, be part of the printed-circuit board, which is the object
whose temperature is being measured. These printed-circuit board lands and traces will not cause the LM50 or
LM50-Q1's temperature to deviate from the desired temperature.
Alternatively, the LM50 and LM50-Q1 can be mounted inside a sealed-end metal tube, and can then be dipped
into a bath or screwed into a threaded hole in a tank. As with any IC, the LM50 and LM50-Q1 and accompanying
wiring and circuits must be kept insulated and dry, to avoid leakage and corrosion. This is especially true if the
circuit may operate at cold temperatures where condensation can occur. Printed-circuit coatings and varnishes
such as Humiseal and epoxy paints or dips are often used to ensure that moisture cannot corrode the device or
its connections.
