ChipCap2 offers one of the most advanced and cost effective humidity and temperature sensing solutions for virtually any type of application. A capacitive polymer sensor chip and a CMOS integrated circuit with EEPROM are integrated into one embedded system in a reflow solderable SMD package. Individually calibrated and tested, ChipCap2 performs at ±2% from 20% to 80% RH (±3% over entire humidity range), and is simple and ready to use without further calibration or temperature compensation.

ChipCap2 Applications:
  • Energy Saving HVAC Control—Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, Indoor Air Quality, Vent Fans, Home Appliances, Humi/Dehumidifiers
  • Process Control & Instrumentation—Medical Instruments, Handheld Devices, Weather Stations, Food Processing, Printers, RFIDs
  • Automobile & Transportation—Cabin Climate Control, Defogging Control Condensing Preventive Device
  • Medical—Nebulizers, Oxygen air, CPAP/Sleep Apnea devices
  • OEM assemblies available
ChipCap2 Features:
  • I²C interface
  • PDM convertible to analog signal
  • High chemical resistivity
  • Small size 4 x 6 mm
  • Alarm function for preset control at min/max humidity
  • Fully Calibrated & Temperature Compensated
  • Precision & Accuracy (±2%RH, ±0.3°C, 14 bit)
  • Free Operating Voltage (min 2.7V to max 5.5V)
  • Calibrated versions at 3.3v and 5v
  • Low Current Consumption
  • SMD/tape and reel packaging for high volume manufacturing
