working with sensors? -- this AppNote is useful "Internal Temperature Sensor"
The outstanding HCS08 ADC peripheral contains numerous features. The automatic compare with interrupt and operation in low-power modes features add unique functionality to this ADC peripheral. ADC also contains an on-chip temperature sensor connected to one of the ADC channel inputs. This allows the MCU to monitor the board temperature and take action such as: • Enter a low power mode to reduce excess battery drain at high temperatures • Adjust calibration tables for temperature dependant sensors • Shut down system loading to prevent damage to mechanical component Temperature Sensor for the HCS08 Microcontroller Family / AN3031 This document explains how to use the temperature sensor available in the analog-to-digital converter (S08ADCV1) peripheral of the HCS08 family of devices. Devices in this family use the high performance HCS08 core and are ideal for a range of appli...
