Theory of Operation for TMP112 Hardware
The TMP112EVM only requires the two-wire I2C lines (SDA and SCLK) and VDUT/GND to supply a
constant 3.3 V and power return, as shown in Figure 3. The TMP112EVM also has test points to monitor
these signal lines and ground, in case users may want to use their own signals or verify successful I2C
communications.

2.2
Signal Definitions of H1 (10-Pin Male Connector Socket)
Table 3 shows the pin out for the 10-pin connector socket used to communicate between the
TMP112EVM and the SM-USB-DIG. Note that the TMP112EVM uses only the necessary I2C
communication lines (pins 1 and 3) and the VDUT and GND (pins 6 and 8, respectively) to issue commands
to the TMP112 sensors.

Using the TMP112Software
Reading from Registers
When first starting the TMP112EVM software, the user must confirm stable connections to the test board
by toggling the Read All Reg button (shown in Figure 12). If all devices are communicating correctly, the
user then sees the temperature change over time in the TMP112 Temperature box. By toggling the AutoRead button, the temperature is automatically refreshed at the rate specified in the Conversion Rate pulldown menu. The conversion rate can only be changed when Auto-Read is turned off.

Writing to Registers
The TMP112EVM software contains two different methods for writing data: Write All Reg and Auto-Write
Reg. Writing the registers individually without auto-write can be useful when adjusting large numbers of
the configuration registers on the left side of the panel. The auto-write feature automatically makes
changes to the configuration register whenever one of the configuration settings on the left changes, as
shown in Figure 13.

Reading the Temperature Gauge
The Temperature box on the TMP112EVM software window displays the measured values of the TMP112
registers in a graphical format, as Figure 14 shows. This value can be toggled to either (degrees)
Fahrenheit or Celsius by toggling the checkbox at the bottom of the window. Note that changing to
extended mode on the TMP112EVM software also changes the full-scale value of the TMP112
thermometer.
Figure 14. Reading the Temperature Gauge
5.2.4
Polarity (Alert Pin)
The polarity drop-down selection box in the Configuration section allows the user to toggle how the Alert
pin behaves when triggered. When the polarity box is set to active low, as shown in Figure 15, the LED on
the TMP112EVM board lights up when triggered and functions as a ground source. When the polarity box
is set to active high, the LED on the TMP112EVM board does not function, and the Alert pin on the
TMP112 is set to DVDD when triggered.

5.2.5
Shutdown Mode
The TMP112 has a built-in shutdown mode that allows the device to stop consuming power. The
shutdown mode selection box (shown in Figure 16) can also be used to clear the Alert pin when the
interrupt mode (refer to Section 5.2.7) is selected. Note that the TMP112EVM cannot perform temperature
conversions while in shutdown mode.
Figure 16. Active and Shutdown Mode
5.2.6
Extended Mode
The TMP112EVM has two modes for storing converted temperature data (extended mode and normal
mode), as shown in Figure 17. Normal mode provides the temperature, TLOW, and THIGH registers 12 bits of
accuracy. By changing to extended mode, the user increases to 13 bits of accuracy and adjusts the fullscale value of the three registers from 120°C to 150°C. Note that adding an additional bit of accuracy also
changes the current THIGH and TLOW values; these values must then be reset to the user's original, intended
values after adjusting the extended mode drop-down box.
Figure 17. Extended and Normal Mode
5.2.7
Thermostat Mode
Thermostat mode, in the Configuration box, allows the user to designate how the TMP112 Alert pin
behaves when the temperature register exceeds the THIGH register. When the TMP112EVM software is in
comparator mode, the Alert pin triggers if the temperature measured by the TMP112 exceeds the THIGH
register for the set amount of faults, as described in the Fault Queue (see Section 5.2.9). When the Alert
pin is triggered, it remains triggered until the temperature measured by the TMP112 falls below the TLOW
register value for the set amount of faults.
When the TMP112EVM software is in interrupt mode, the Alert pin does not automatically clear after
falling below the TLOW register limit. Instead, the user must either select the Read All Reg button or put the
device into shutdown mode, as described in Section 5.2.5. After the Read All Reg button is selected, or
after the device is put into shutdown mode, the Alert pin clears when the measured temperature drops
down below the TLOW register. Figure 18 shows the thermostat mode dialog.

Conversion Rate
The Conversion Rate selection box (shown in Figure 19) allows the user to change how long each
temperature conversion takes the TMP112 to perform. The user may want to select a slower conversion
time, as shown in Figure 19, to make the TMP112 consume less power.
Figure 19. Conversion Rate
5.2.9
Fault Queue
The fault queue drop-down box allows the user to configure how many faults must be triggered before the
Alert pin is activated, as shown in Figure 20. A fault is generated whenever the TMP112 THIGH register is
exceeded by the temperature register. This feature can be useful to prevent the TMP112 from triggering
on temperature spikes that the user may not want to trigger with the Alert pin.

5.2.10
Logging
Specify the path and filename for logging data, as shown in Figure 21. The standard file format is .csv.
Data are saved in four columns: Time, Temp, Tlow and Thigh. Time is in the format of hh:mm:ss.ms; the
remaining columns are readouts from the TMP112 in Celsius.

Alert Configuration (TLOW and THIGH)
The Alert Config box has three objects that make up the main functionality of the TMP112 Alert pin (the
Alert bit, TLOW register, and THIGH register), as Figure 22 shows. The green LED within the Alert Config box
lights up when the THIGH register is exceeded and the Alert pin is activated. This LED is denoted as an
Alert because of the default configuration. The Alert pin can also be switched to an active high, as shown
in Section 5.2.4, if so desired by the user.
Figure 22. Alert Config Box
The TLOW input box allows the user to set when the alert pin is cleared. When the measured value in the
temperature register falls below the TLOW threshold, the Alert pin clears, depending on which thermostat
mode is selected. For more information on the behavior of the thermostat mode, see Section 5.2.7.
The THIGH input box allows the user to set when the Alert pin is triggered. When the measured value in the
temperature register exceeds the THIGH threshold, the Alert pin triggers until the temperature returns to a
value below the TLOW threshold, depending on the thermostat mode selected.
5.2.12
Registers Tab
The registers tab displays the individual register setting for the TMP112 sensors. For more information on
the individual registers and the bit meanings, simply highlight the desired register and hit the Help with
Reg button shown in Figure 23.
Figure 23. Register Tab
The Registers tab also includes the Dig_Bits table. The Dig_Bits table allows the user to monitor and
change individual bits by highlighting the desired register and toggling the bit controls beneath it.
NOTE: Only the bits that can be written within a given register can be toggled.
