Lots of info regarding temperature sensor, temperature, temperature conversion, and sensor are described in the application note. The application note contains information regarding oscillator, temperature measurement, compatible interface, and configuration.
In this application note you can get explanation related to eeprom, thermal, conversion, and thermal sensor. Here are selected from this application note:
Silicon temperature sensors offer an easy-to-use alternative to traditional temperature sensors, such as thermocouple, thermistors and RTDs. The TC77 SPI™ Thermal Silicon Sensor is especially suited for embedded systems, due to its SPI interface. This serves to provide a straight-forward and easy way to interface to a microcontroller. This application note will discuss system integration, firmware implementation and PCB layout techniques for the TC77 in an embedded system. The TC77 demonstration is designed to measure and display temperature in binary coded decimal (BCD) with the PICkit 1 LEDs.
Giving more content, the application note explains info things like interface, memory, comparator, and output.
