Advanced platform for humidity and temperature sensors

Paul Boughton

Sensirion’s Platform3x consists of a group of humidity and temperature sensors with different precision levels and features.

The Platform3x is optimally designed for individual applications on the market. Whether for the cost-conscious, the groundbreaking or the high-end product that demands the best humidity and temperature sensor, the Platform3x suits every discipline and provides a solution for all precision classes and various interfaces.

The SHT3x combines the strengths of the established SHT1x, the SHT2x and the advanced SHTC1 series in a single product. 

The SHT3x includes a user programmable alert function, where the sensor can be used as a humidity and temperature guard.

Moreover, Sensirion’s latest innovation contains an analogue ratiometric voltage output. This is the first fully calibrated and linear digital/analogue humidity and temperature sensor.

The SHT3x series thus combines multiple functions and various interfaces (I2C, voltage out) with a user-friendly, very wide operating voltage range (2.4 to 5.5 V). 

Like all sensors from Sensirion, the SHT3x is based on the CMOSens Technology. In addition, the technology enables a small footprint of 2.5 x 2.5 mm with a height of 0.9mm. So Sensirion has once again launched one of the smallest humidity sensors for applications over 2.4V.
