2 General Description
The MLX90614 is an Infra Red thermometer for non
contact temperature measurements. Both the IR sensitive
thermopile detector chip and the signal conditioning ASSP
are integrated in the same TO-39 can.
Thanks to its low noise amplifier, 17-bit ADC and powerful
DSP unit, a high accuracy and resolution of the
thermometer is achieved.
The thermometer comes factory calibrated with a digital
PWM and SMBus (System Management Bus) output.
As a standard, the 10-bit PWM is configured to
continuously transmit the measured temperature in range
of -20 to 120 ˚C, with an output resolution of 0.14 ˚C and
the POR default is SMBus.

General description (continued)
The MLX90614 is built from 2 chips developed and manufactured by Melexis:
•
The Infra Red thermopile detector MLX81101
•
The signal conditioning ASSP MLX90302, specially designed to process the output of IR sensor.
The device is available in an industry standard TO-39 package.
Thanks to the low noise amplifier, high resolution 17-bit ADC and powerful DSP unit of MLX90302 high
accuracy and resolution of the thermometer is achieved. The calculated object and ambient temperatures are
available in RAM of MLX90302 with resolution of 0.01 ˚C. They are accessible by 2 wire serial SMBus
compatible protocol (0.02°C resolution) or via 10-bit PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) output of the device.
The MLX90614 is factory calibrated in wide temperature ranges: -40 to 125 ˚C for the ambient temperature
and -70 to 382.2 ˚C for the object temperature. The 10-bit PWM is as a standard configured to transmit
continuously the measured object temperature for an object temperature range of -20 to 120 ˚C with an
output resolution of 0.14 ˚C. The PWM can be easily customized for virtually any range desired by the
customer by changing the content of 2 EEPROM cells. This has no effect on the factory calibration of the
device.
The PWM pin can also be configured to act as a thermal relay (input is To), thus allowing for an easy and
cost effective implementation in thermostats or temperature (freezing/boiling) alert applications. The
temperature threshold is user programmable. In an SMBus system this feature can act as a processor
interrupt that can trigger reading all slaves on the bus and to determine the precise condition.
As a standard, the MLX90614 is calibrated for an object emissivity of 1. It can be easily customized by the
customer for any other emissivity in the range 0.1-1.0 without the need of recalibration with a black body.
The thermometer is available in 2 supply voltage options: 5V compatible or 3V (battery) compatible. The 5V
can be easily adopted to operate from a higher supply voltage (8-16V, for example) by use of few external
components (refer to “Applications information” section for details).
An optical filter (long-wave pass) that cuts off the visible and near infra-red radiant flux is integrated in the
package to provide sunlight immunity.

Notes: All the communication and refresh rate timings are given for the nominal calibrated HFO frequency and will vary
with this frequency’s variations.
1. All PWM timing specifications are given for single PWM output (factory default for MLX90614xAx). For the extended
PWM output (factory default for the MLX90614xBx) each period has twice the timing specifications (refer to the PWM
detailed description section). With large capacitive load lower PWM frequency is recommended. Thermal relay output
(when configured) has the PWM DC specification and can be programmed as push-pull, or NMOS open drain. PWM is
free-running, power-up factory default is SMBus, refer to 7.6, “Switching between PWM and SMBus communication” for
details..
2. For SMBus compatible interface on 12V application refer to Application information section. SMBus compatible
interface is described in details in the SMBus detailed description section. Maximum number of MLX90614xxx devices on
one bus is 127, higher pullup currents are recommended for higher number of devices, faster bus data transfer rates, and
increased reactive loading of the bus.
MLX90614xxx is always a slave device on the bus. MLX90614xxx can work in both low-power and high-power SMBus
communication.
All voltages are referred to the Vss (ground) unless otherwise noted.
Power saving mode is not available on the 5V version (MLX90614Axx).

8.2 Signal processing principle
The operation of the MLX90614 is controlled by an internal state machine, which controls the measurements
and calculations of the object and ambient temperatures and does the post-processing of the temperatures to
output them through the PWM output or the SMBus compatible interface.
The ASSP supports 2 IR sensors (second one not implemented in the MLX90614xAx).The output of the IR
sensors is amplified by a low noise low offset chopper amplifier with programmable gain, converted by a
Sigma Delta modulator to a single bit stream and fed to a powerful DSP for further processing. The signal is
treated by programmable (by means of EEPROM contend) FIR and IIR low pass filters for further reduction of
the band width of the input signal to achieve the desired noise performance and refresh rate. The output of
the IIR filter is the measurement result and is available in the internal RAM. 3 different cells are available:
One for the on-board temperature sensor (on chip PTAT or PTC) and 2 for the IR sensors.
Based on results of the above measurements, the corresponding ambient temperature Ta and object
temperatures To are calculated. Both calculated temperatures have a resolution of 0.01 ˚C. The data for Ta
and To can be read in two ways: Reading RAM cells dedicated for this purpose via the 2-wire interface
(0.02°C resolution, fixed ranges), or through the PWM digital output (10 bit resolution, configurable range).
In the last step of the measurement cycle, the measured Ta and To are rescaled to the desired output
resolution of the PWM) and the recalculated data is loaded in the registers of the PWM state machine, which
creates a constant frequency with a duty cycle representing the measured data.

8.3 Block description
8.3.1 Amplifier
A low noise low offset amplifier with programmable gain is implemented for amplification of the IR sensor
voltage. With a carefully designed input modulator and balanced input impedance, an offset as low as 0.5µV
is achieved.
8.3.2 Supply regulator and POR
The module can operate from 2 different supplies:
VDD= 5V => MLX90614Axx
VDD=3.3V => MLX90614Bxx (battery or regulated supply)
Refer to “Applications information” section for information about adopting higher voltage supplies.
The Power On Reset (POR) is connected to Vdd supply. The on-chip POR circuit provides an active (high)
level of the POR signal when the Vdd voltage rises above approximately 0.5V and holds the entire
MLX90614xxx in reset until the Vdd is higher than the specified POR threshold VPOR (note that this level is
different for MLX90614Axx and MLX90614Bxx). During the time POR is active, the POR signal is available as
an open drain (active high) at the PWM/SDA pin. After the MLX90614xxx exits the POR condition, the
function programmed in EEPROM takes precedence for that pin.

8.4 SMBus compatible 2-wire protocol
The chip supports a 2 wires serial protocol, build with pins PWM/SDA and SCL.
•
•
SCL – digital input, used as the clock for SMBus compatible communication. This pin has the
auxiliary function for building an external voltage regulator. When the external voltage regulator is
used, the 2-wire protocol is available only if the power supply regulator is overdriven.
PWM/SDA – Digital input/output, used for both the PWM output of the measured object
temperature(s) or the digital input/output for the SMBus. The pin can be programmed in EEPROM to
operate as Push/Pull or open drain NMOS (open drain NMOS is factory default).
8.4.1 Functional description
The SMBus interface is a 2-wire protocol, allowing communication between the Master Device (MD) and one
or more Slave Devices (SD). In the system only one master can be presented at any given time [1]. The
MLX90614 can only be used as a slave device.
Generally, the MD initiates the start of data transfer by selecting a SD through the Slave Address (SA).
The MD has read access to the RAM and EEPROM and write access to 9 EEPROM cells (at addresses
0x20h, 0x21h, 0x22h, 0x23h, 0x24h, 0x25h*, 0x2Eh, 0x2Fh, 0x39h). If the access to the MLX90614 is a read
operation it will respond with 16 data bits and 8 bit PEC only if its own slave address, programmed in internal
EEPROM, is equal to the SA, sent by the master. The SA feature allows connecting up to 127 devices with
only 2 wires, unless the system has some of the specific features described in paragraph 5.2 of reference
[1]. In order to provide access to any device or to assign an address to a SD before it is connected to the bus
system, the communication must start with zero SA followed by low RWB bit. When this command is sent
from the MD, the MLX90614 will always respond and will ignore the internal chip code information.
Special care must be taken not to put two MLX90614 devices with the same SD addresses on the
same bus as MLX90614 does not support ARP[1].
The MD can force the MLX90614 into low consumption mode “sleep mode” (3V version only).
Read flags like “EEBUSY” (1 – EEPROM is busy with executing the previous write/erase), “EE_DEAD” (1 –
there is fatal EEPROM error and this chip is not functional**).
Note*: This address is readable and writable. Bit 3 should not be altered as this will cancel the factory
calibration.
Note**: EEPROM error signaling is implemented in automotive grade parts only.

8.4.2 Differences with the standard SMBus specification (reference [1])
There are eleven command protocols for standard SMBus interface. The MLX90614 supports only two of
them. Not supported commands are:
• Quick Command
• Byte commands - Sent Byte, Receive Byte, Write Byte and Read Byte
• Process Call
• Block commands – Block Write and Write-Block Read Process Call
Supported commands are:
• Read Word
• Write Word
8.4.3 Detailed description
The PWM/SDA pin of MLX90614 can operate also as PWM output, depending on the EEPROM settings. If
PWM is enabled, after POR the PWM/SDA pin is directly configured as PWM output. The PWM mode can be
avoided and the pin can be restored to its Data function by a special command. That is why hereafter both
modes are treated separately.

After every 8 bits received by the SD an ACK/NACK takes place. When a MD initiates communication, it first
sends the address of the slave and only the SD which recognizes the address will ACK, the rest will remain
silent. In case the SD NACKs one of the bytes, the MD should stop the communication and repeat the
message. A NACK could be received after the PEC. This means that there is an error in the received
message and the MD should try sending the message again. The PEC calculation includes all bits except the
START, REPEATED START, STOP, ACK, and NACK bits. The PEC is a CRC-8 with polynomial
X8+X2+X1+1. The Most Significant Bit of every byte is transferred first.

8.4.4.1 Timing
The MLX90614 meets all the timing specifications of the SMBus [1]. The maximum frequency of the
MLX90614 SMBus is 100 KHz and the minimum is 10 KHz.
The specific timings in MLX90614’s SMBus are:
SMBus Request (tREQ ) is the time that the SCL should be forced low in order to switch MLX90614 from PWM
mode to SMBus mode;
Timeout L is the maximum allowed time for SCL to be low. After this time the MLX90614 will reset its
communication block and will be ready for new communication;
Timeout H is the maximum time for which it is allowed for SCL to be high during communication. After this
time MLX90614 will reset its communication block assuming that the bus is idle (according to the SMBus
specification).
Tsuac(SD) is the time after the eighth falling edge of SCL that MLX90614 will force PWM/SDA low to
acknowledge the last received byte.
Thdac(SD) is the time after the ninth falling edge of SCL that MLX90614 will release the PWM/SDA (so the
MD can continue with the communication).
Tsuac(MD) is the time after the eighth falling edge of SCL that MLX90614 will release PWM/SDA (so that the
MD can acknowledge the last received byte).
Thdac(MD) is the time after the ninth falling edge of SCL that MLX90614 will take control of the PWM/SDA
(so it can continue with the next byte to transmit).

The data on PWM/SDA must be changed when SCL is low (min 300ns after the falling edge of SCL). The

8.4.6 Commands
In application mode RAM and EEPROM can be read both with 32x16 sizes. If the RAM is read, the data are
divided by two, due to a sign bit in RAM (for example, TOBJ1 - RAM address 0x07h will sweep between
0x27ADh to 0x7FFF as the object temperature rises from -70.01°C to +382.19°C). The MSB read from RAM
is an error flag (active high) for the linearized temperatures (TOBJ1, TOBJ2 and Ta). The MSB for the raw data
(e.g. IR sensor1 data) is a sign bit (sign and magnitude format).

Note**: Behaves like read command. The MLX90614 returns PEC after 16 bits data of which only 4 are
meaningful and if the MD wants it, it can stop the communication after the first byte. The difference between
read and read flags is that the latter does not have a repeated start bit.
Flags read are:
Data[15] – EEBUSY – the previous write/erase EEPROM access is still in progress. High active.
Data[14] – Unused
Data[13] - EE_DEAD – EEPROM double error has occurred. High active.
Data[12] – INIT – POR initialization routine is still ongoing. Low active.
Data[11] – not implemented.
Data[10..0] – all zeros.
Flags read is a diagnostic feature. The MLX90614 can be used regardless of these flags.

8.4.7 Sleep Mode
The MLX90614 can enter in Sleep Mode via the command “Enter SLEEP mode” sent via the SMBus
interface. This mode is not available for the 5V supply version. To limit the current consumption to 2.5uA
(typical), the SCL pin should be kept low during sleep. MLX90614 goes back into power-up default mode (via
POR reset) by setting SCL pin high and then PWM/SDA pin low for at least tDDq=80ms. If EEPROM is
configured for PWM (EN_PWM is high), the PWM interface will be selected after awakening and if
PWM control [2], PPODB is 1 the MLX90614 will output a PWM pulse train with push-pull output.

8.5 PWM
The MLX90614 can be read via PWM or SMBus compatible interface. Selection of PWM output is done in
EEPROM configuration (factory default is PWM). PWM output has two programmable formats, single and
dual data transmission, providing single wire reading of two temperatures (dual zone object or object and
ambient). The PWM period is derived from the on-chip oscillator and is programmable.

In single PWM output mode the settings for PWM1 data only are used. The temperature reading can be

Tout = ⎢ 2 * (Tmax − Tmin)⎥ + Tmin ,
⎣T
⎦
where Tmin and Tmax are the corresponding rescale coefficients in EEPROM for the selected temperature
output (Ta, object temperature range is valid for both Tobj1 and Tobj2 as specified in the previous table) and
T is the PWM period. Tout is Tobj1, Tobj2 or Ta according to Config Register [5:4] settings.

The different time intervals t1-t3 have the following functions:
t1: Start buffer. During this time the signal is always high. t1 = 0.125*T (T is the PWM period, refer to fig. 11).
t2: Valid Data Output Band, 0 to 1/2T. PWM output data resolution is 10 bit.
t3: Error band – information for fatal error in EEPROM (double error detected, not correctable). t3 = 0.25 * T.
Therefore a PWM pulse train with a duty cycle of 0.875 will indicate a fatal error in EEPROM (for single PWM
format).
Example:
Tobj1 => Config Reg[5:4] = 11’b
=>
Tomin [EEPROM] = 100 * (tomin + 273.15) = 6AB3h
Tomin = 0°C
Tomax = +50°C
=>
Tomax [EEPROM] = 100 * (tomax + 273.15) = 7E3Bh
Captured PWM high duration is 0.495*T => t2=(0.495 – 0.125)*T=0.370*T =>
measured object temperature = 2X0.370* (50°C -0°C)+0°C = +37.0°C.
8.5.2 Extended PWM format
The PWM format for extended PWM is shown in Figure 11. Note that with bits DUAL[5:1]>00h each period
will be outputted 2N+1 times, where N is the decimal value of the number written in DUAL[5:1] (DUAL[5:1]
=PWM control & clock [8:4] ), like shown on Figure 12.
Figure 12: Extended PWM format with DUAL[5:1] = 01h (2 repetitions for each data)
The temperature transmitted in Data 1 field can be calculated using the following equation:
⎡ 2t
⎤
Tout1 = ⎢ 2 * (Tmax1 − Tmin1 )⎥ + Tmin1
⎣T
⎦
For Data 2 field the equation is:
⎤
⎡ 2t
Tout 2 = ⎢ 5 * (Tmax2 − Tmin2 )⎥ + Tmin2
⎦
⎣T
Where Tmin1, Tmax1, Tmin2 and Tmax2 are given in Table 9, t2=thigh1-t1, and t5=thigh2-t4.
Time bands are: t1=0.125*T, t3=0.25*T and t4=1.125*T. As shown in Figure 11, in extended PWM format the
period is twice the period for the single PWM format. All equations provided herein are given for the single
PWM period T. The EEPROM Error band signaling will be 43.75% duty cycle for Data1 and 93.75% for
Data2.
Note: EEPROM error signaling is implemented in automotive grade parts only.
Example:
Configuration: Ta : Tobj1 @ Data1 : Data2 => Config Reg[5:4] = 00b,
Tamin = -5°C
=>
Tarange, L [EEPROM] = 100*(Tamin+38.2)/64 = 34h,
Tarange,H [EEPROM] = 100*(Tamax+38.2)/64 = E0h,
Tamax = +105°C =>
Tarange [EEPROM]=E034h
=>
Tomin [EEPROM] = 100 * (Tomin + 273.15) = 6AB3h
Tomin = 0°C
Tomax = +50°C
=>
Tomax [EEPROM] = 100 * (Tomax + 273.15) = 7E3Bh
Captured high durations are 0.13068*(2T) and 0.7475*(2T), where 2T is each captured PWM period. Time band t4 is
provided for reliable determination between Data1 and Data2 data fields. Thus Data1 is represented by 0.13068*(2T) and
Data2 – by 0.7475*(2T), and the temperatures can be calculated as follows:
t2/T=(thigh1/T)-0.125=0.13636 => Ta=+25.0°C,
t5/T=( thigh2/T)-1.125=0.370 => Tobj1=+37.0°C.

8.5.3 Customizing the temperature range for PWM output
The calculated ambient and object temperatures are stored in RAM with a resolution of 0.01 °C (16 bit). The
PWM operates with a 10-bit word so the transmitted temperature is rescaled in order to fit in the desired
range.
For this goal 2 cells in EEPROM are foreseen to store the desired range for To (Tomin and Tomax) and one for
Ta (Tarange: the 8MSB are foreseen for Tamax and the 8LSB for Tamin).
Thus the output range for To can be programmed with an accuracy of 0.01 °C, while the corresponding Ta
range can be programmed with an accuracy of 2.56 °C.
The object data for PWM is rescaled according to the following equation:
TPWMobj =
TRAM − TMIN EEPROM
K PWM obj
, K PWM obj =
TMAX EEPROM − TMIN EEPROM
1023
The TRAM is the linearized Tobj, 16-bit (0000…FFFFh, 0000 for -273.15°C and FFFFh for +382.2°C) and the
result is a 10-bit word, in which 000h corresponds to ToMIN[°C], 3FFh corresponds to ToMAX[°C] and 1LSB
ToMAX − ToMIN
[°C]
1023
= TMIN ∗ 100 LSB
corresponds to
TMIN EEPORM
TMAX EEPORM = TMAX ∗ 100 LSB
The ambient data for PWM is rescaled according to the following equation:
TPWMambient =
TRAM − TMIN EEPROM
K PWMambient
, K PWM ambient =
TMAX EEPROM − TMIN EEPROM
1023
The result is a 10-bit word, where 000h corresponds to -38.2 °C (lowest Ta that can be read via PWM), 3FFh
corresponds to 125 °C (highest Ta that can be read via PWM) and 1LSB corresponds to
TMAX − TMIN

Figure 14: Request (switch to SMBus) condition
If PWM is enabled, the MLX90614’s SMBus Request condition is needed to disable PWM and reconfigure
PWM/SDA pin before starting SMBus communication. Once PWM is disable, it can be only enabled by
switching the supply Off-On or exit from Sleep Mode. The MLX90614’s SMBus request condition requires
forcing LOW the SCL pin for period longer than the request time (tREQ). The SDA line value is ignored in this
case.
8.6.3 PWM is disabled
If PWM is disabled by means of EEPROM the PWM/SDA pin is directly used for the SMBus purposes after
POR. Request condition should not be sent in this case.

8.7 Computation of ambient and object temperatures
The IR sensor consists of serial connected thermo-couples with cold junctions placed at thick chip substrate
and hot junctions, placed over thin membrane. The IR radiation absorbed from the membrane heats (or
cools) it. The thermopile output signal is:
Vir (Ta, To ) = A.(To 4 − Ta 4 ) ,
Where To is the object temperature absolute (Kelvin) temperature, Ta is the sensor die absolute (Kelvin)
temperature, and A is the overall sensitivity.
An on board temperature sensor is needed to measure the chip temperature. After measurement of the
output of both sensors, the corresponding ambient and object temperatures can be calculated. These
calculations are done by the internal DSP, which produces digital outputs, linearly proportional to measured
temperatures.
8.7.1 Ambient temperature Ta
The Sensor die temperature is measured with a PTC or a PTAT element. All the sensors’ conditioning and
data processing is handled on-chip and the linearized sensor die temperature Ta is made available in
memory.
The resolution of the calculated Ta is 0.01 ˚C. The sensor is factory calibrated for the full automotive range
(-40 to 125 ˚C). In RAM cell 006h, 0000h corresponds to -40 ˚C and 4074h (16500d) corresponds to 125 ˚C.
The conversions from RAM contend to real Ta is easy using the following relation:
Ta[° K ] = Tareg × 0.01 Note that via SMBus Ta is read divided by 2, or Ta, SMBus[°K]=Tareg x 0.02
8.7.2 Object temperature To
The result has a resolution of 0.01 ˚C and is available in RAM. To is derived from RAM as:
To[° K ] = Toreg × 0.01 Note that via SMBus To is read divided by 2, or To, SMBus[°K]=Toreg x 0.02
8.7.3 Calculation flow
The measurement, calculation and linearization are held by core, which executes a program form ROM.
After POR the chip is initialized with calibration data from EEPROM. During this phase the number of IR
sensors is selected and it is decided which temperature sensor will be used. Measurements, compensation
and linearization routines run in a closed loop afterwards.
Processing ambient temperature includes:
Offset measurement with fixed length FIR filter
Additional filtering with fixed length IIR filter. The result is stored into RAM as TOS
Temperature sensor measurement using programmable length FIR *.
Offset compensation
Additional processing with programmable length IIR **. The result is stored into RAM as TD.
Calculation of the ambient temperature. The result is stored into RAM as TA
Processing of the object temperature consists of three parts. The first one is common for both IR sensors, the
third part can be skipped if only one IR sensor is used.

8.8 Thermal relay
The MLX90614 can be configured to behave as a thermo relay with programmable threshold and hysteresis
on the PWM/SDA pin. The input for the comparator unit of the relay is the object temperature from sensor 1
The output of the MLX90614 is NOT a relay driver but a logical output which should be connected to a
relay driver if necessary.
In order to configure the MLX90614 to work as thermal relay two conditions must be met:
o Set bit TRPWMB high at address 002h in EEPROM
o Enable PWM output i.e. EN_PWM is set high
The PWM/SDA pin can be programmed as a push-pull or open drain NMOS (via bit PPODB in EEPROM
PWMCTRL), which can trigger an external device. The temperature threshold data is determined by
EEPROM at address 021h (Tomin) and the hysteresis at address 020h (Tomax).
The logical state of the PWM/SDA pin is as follows:
PWM/SDA pin is high if Tobj 1 ≥ threshold + hysteresis
PWM/SDA pin is low if Tobj 1 ≤ threshold − hysteresis
“1”
hysteresis
hysteresis
“0”
threshold
T
Figure 16: Thermal relay : “PWM” pin versus Tobj
The MLX90614 preserves its normal operation when configured as a thermal relay (PWM configuration and
specification applies as a general rule also for the thermal relay) and therefore it can be read using the
SMBus (entering the SMBus mode from both PWM and thermal relay configuration is the same).
For example, the MLX90614 can generate a wake-up alert for a system upon reaching a certain temperature
and then be read as a thermometer. A reset condition (enter-and exit Sleep, for example) will be needed in
order to return to the thermal relay configuration.
Example: threshold 5 °C => (5 + 273.15)*100 = 27815 = 6CA7h
hysteresis is 1°C => 1 * 100 = 100 = 64h
PWM/SDA pin will be low at object temperature below 4 °C
PWM/SDA pin will be high at object temperature higher that 6 °C

9 Unique Features
The MLX90614 is a ready-to use low-cost non contact thermometer provided from Melexis with output data
linearly dependent on the object temperature with high accuracy and extended resolution.
It supports versatile customization to a very wide range of temperatures, power supplies and refresh rates.
The user can program the internal object emissivity correction for objects with a low emissivity. An embedded
error checking and correction mechanism provides high memory reliability.
The sensors are housed in an industry standard TO39 package for both single- and dual-zone IR
thermometers. The thermometer is available in automotive grade and can use two different packages for
wider applications’ coverage.
The low power consumption and sleep mode make the thermometer ideally suited for handheld mobile
applications.
The digital sensor interface can be either a power-up-and-measure PWM or an enhanced access SMBus
compatible protocol. Systems with more than 100 devices can be built with only two signal lines. Dual zone
non contact temperature measurements are available via a single line (extended PWM).
A built-in thermal relay function further extends the easy implementation of wide variety of freezing/boiling
prevention and alert systems, as well as thermostats (no MCU is needed).

two common wires. With the MLX90614BBx this results in 254 object temperatures measured remotely and
an additional 127 ambient temperatures which are also available. Current source pull-ups may be preferred
with higher capacitive loading on the bus (C3 and C4 represent the lines’ parasitics), while simple resistive
pull-ups provide the obvious low cost advantage.

Again, the PWM mode needs to be written as the POR default in EEPROM. Then for PWM operation the
SCL line can be high impedance, forced high, or even not connected. The pull-up resistor R1 will ensure
there is a high level on the SCL pin and the PWM POR default will be active. SMBus is still available (for
example – for further reconfiguration of the MLX90614, or sleep mode power management) as there are pullup resistors on the SMBus lines anyway.
PWM can be configured as open drain NMOS or a push-pull output. In the case of open drain external pull-up
will be needed. This allows cheap level conversion to lower logic high voltage. Internal pull-ups present in
many MCUs can also be used.

Figure 26: Thermal alert/thermostat applications of MLX90614
The MLX90614 can be configured in EEPROM to operate as a thermal relay. A non contact freezing or
boiling prevention with 1 mA quiescent current can be built with two components only – the MLX90614 and a
capacitor. The PWM/SDA pin can be programmed as a push-pull or open drain NMOS, which can trigger
external device, such as a relay (refer to electrical specifications for load capability), buzzer, RF transmitter or
a LED. This feature allows very simple thermostats to be built without the need of any MCU and zero design
overhead required for firmware development. In conjunction with a MCU, this function can operate as a
system alert that wakes up the MCU. Both object temperature and sensor die temperature can also be read
in this configuration.

12 Application Comments
Significant contamination at the optical input side (sensor filter) might cause unknown additional
filtering/distortion of the optical signal and therefore result in unspecified errors.
IR sensors are inherently susceptible to errors caused by thermal gradients. There are physical reasons for
these phenomena and, in spite of the careful design of the MLX90614xxx, it is recommended not to subject
the MLX90614 to heat transfer and especially transient conditions.
Upon power-up the MLX90614 passes embedded checking and calibration routines. During these routines
the output is not defined and it is recommended to wait for the specified POR time before reading the module.
Very slow power-up may cause the embedded POR circuitry to trigger on inappropriate levels, resulting in
unspecified operation and is not recommended.
The MLX90614xxx is designed and calibrated to operate as a non contact thermometer in settled
conditions. Using the thermometer in a very different way will result in unknown results.
Capacitive loading on a SMBus can degrade the communication. Some improvement is possible with use
of current sources compared to resistors in pull-up circuitry. Further improvement is possible with specialized
commercially available bus accelerators. With the MLX90614xxx additional improvement is possible by
increasing the pull-up current (decreasing the pull-up resistor values). Input levels for SMBus compatible
mode have higher overall tolerance than the SMBus specification, but the output low level is rather low even
with the high-power SMBus specification for pull-up currents. Another option might be to go for a slower
communication (clock speed), as the MLX90614xxx implements Schmidt triggers on its inputs in SMBus
compatible mode and is therefore not really sensitive to rise time of the bus (it is more likely the rise time to
be an issue than the fall time, as far as the SMBus systems are open drain with pull-up).
For ESD protection there are clamp diodes between the Vss and Vdd and each of the other pins. This
means that the MLX90614 might draw current from a bus in case the SCL and/or SDA is connected and the
Vdd is lower than the bus pull-ups’ voltage.
In 12V powered systems SMBus usage is constrained because the SCL pin is used for the Zener diode
function. Applications where the supply a higher than 5V should use the PWM output or an external regulator.
Nevertheless, in the 12V powered applications MLX90614 can be programmed (configured and customized)
by forcing the Vdd to 5V externally and running the SMBus communication.
Sleep mode is available in MLX90614Bxx. This mode is entered and exited via the SMBus compatible 2-wire
communication. On the other hand, the extended functionality of the SCL pin yields in increased leakage
current through that pin. As a result, this pin needs to be forced low in power-down mode and the pull-up on
the SCL line needs to be disabled in order to keep the overall power drain in power-down really small.
The PWM pin is not designed for direct drive of inductive loads (such as electro-magnetic relays). Some
drivers need to be implemented for higher load, and auxiliary protection might be necessary even for light but
inductive loading.
It is possible to use the MLX90614xxx in applications, powered directly from the AC line (transformer less). In
such cases it is very important not to forget that the metal package of the sensor is not isolated and
therefore may occur to be connected to that line, too. Melexis can not be responsible for any application like
this and highly recommends not to use the MLX90614xxx in that way.
Power dissipation within the package may affect performance in two ways: by heating the “ambient” sensitive
element significantly beyond the actual ambient temperature, as well as by causing gradients over the
package that will inherently cause thermal gradient over the cap. Loading the outputs also causes increased
power dissipation. In case of using the MLX90614Axx internal zener voltage feature, the regulating external
transistor should also not cause heating of the TO39 package.

Infra Red Thermometer in TO-39
High capacitive load on a PWM line will result in significant charging currents from the power supply,
bypassing the capacitor and therefore causing EMC, noise, level degradation and power dissipation
problems. A simple option is adding a series resistor between the PWM/SDA pin and the capacitive loaded
line, in which case timing specifications have to be carefully reviewed. For example, with a PWM output that
is set to 1.024 ms and the output format that is 11 bit, the time step is 0.5 µs and a settling time of 2 µs would
introduce a 4 LSBs error.
Power supply decoupling capacitor is needed as with most integrated circuits. MLX90614 is a mixed-signal
device with sensors, small signal analog part, digital part and I/O circuitry. In order to keep the noise low
power supply switching noise needs to be decoupled. High noise from external circuitry can also affect noise
performance of the device. In many applications a 100nF SMD ceramic capacitor close to the Vdd and Vss
pins would be a good choice. It should be noted that not only the trace to the Vdd pin needs to be short, but
also the one to the Vss pin. Using MLX90614 with short pins improves the effect of the power supply
decoupling.
Severe noise can also be coupled within the package from the SCL (in worst cases also from the SDA) pin.
This issue can be solved by using PWM output. Also the PWM output can pass additional filtering (at lower
PWM frequency settings). With a simple LPF RC network added also increase of the ESD rating is possible.

15 FAQ
When I measure aluminum and plastic parts settled at the same conditions I get significant errors on
aluminum. Why?
Different materials have different emissivity. A typical value for aluminium (roughly polished) is 0.18 and for
plastics values of 0.84…0.95 are typical. IR thermometers use the radiation flux between the sensitive
element in the sensor and the object of interest, given by the equation
( )
( )
q = ε 1 .α 1 . T1 .σ . A1 .Fa −b − ε 2 . T2 .σ . A2 ,
4
4
Where:
ε1 and ε2 are the emissivities of the two objects,
α1 is the absorptivity of the sensor (in this case),
σ is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant,
A1 and A2 are the surface areas involved in the radiation heat transfer,
Fa-b is the shape factor,
T1 and T2 are known temperature of the sensor die (measured with specially integrated and calibrated
element) and the object temperature that we need.
Note that these are all in Kelvin, heat exchange knows only physics.
When a body with low emissivity (such as aluminum) is involved in this heat transfer, the portion of the
radiation incident to the sensor element that really comes from the object of interest decreases – and the
reflected environmental IR emissions take place. (This is all for bodies with zero transparency in the IR band.)
The IR thermometer is calibrated to stay within specified accuracy – but it has no way to separate the
incoming IR radiation into real object and reflected environmental part. Therefore, measuring objects with low
emissivity is a very sophisticated issue and infra-red measurements of such materials is a specialized field.
What can be done to solve that problem? Look at paintings – for example, oil paints are likely to have
emissivity of 0.85…0.95 – but keep in mind that the stability of the paint emissivity has inevitable impact on
measurements.
It is also a good point to keep in mind that not everything that looks black is “black” also for IR. For example,
even heavily oxidized aluminum has still emissivity as low as 0.30.
How high is enough? Not an easy question – but, in all cases the closer you need to get to the real object
temperature the higher the needed emissivity will be, of course.
With the real life emissivity values the environmental IR comes into play via the reflectivity of the object (the
sum of Emissivity, Reflectivity and Absorptivity gives 1.00 for any material). The larger the difference between
environmental and object temperature is at given reflectivity (with an opaque for IR material reflectivity equals
1.00 minus emissivity) the bigger errors it produces.
After I put the MLX90614 in the dashboard I start getting errors larger than specified in spite that the
module was working properly before that. Why?
Any object present in the FOV of the module provides IR signal. It is actually possible to introduce error in the
measurements if the module is attached to the dashboard with an opening that enters the FOV. In that case
portion of the dashboard opening will introduce IR signal in conjunction with constraining the effective FOV
and thus compromising specified accuracy. Relevant opening that takes in account the FOV is a must for
accurate measurements. Note that the basic FOV specification takes 50% of IR signal as threshold (in order
to define the area, where the measurements are relevant), while the entire FOV at lower level is capable of
introducing lateral IR signal under many conditions.
When a hot (cold) air stream hits my MLX90614 some error adds to the measured temperature I read.
What is it?
IR sensors are inherently sensitive to difference in temperatures between the sensitive element and
everything incident to that element. As a matter of fact, this element is not the sensor package, but the sensor
die inside. Therefore, a thermal gradient over the sensor package will inevitably result in additional IR flux

between the sensor package and the sensor die. This is real optical signal that can not be segregated from
the target IR signal and will add errors to the measured temperature.
Thermal gradients with impact of that kind are likely to appear during transient conditions. The sensor used is
developed with care about sensitivity to this kind of lateral phenomena, but their nature demands some care
when choosing place to use the MLX90614 in order to make them negligible.
I measure human body temperature and I often get measurements that significantly differ from the
+37°C I expect.
IR measurements are true surface temperature measurements. In many applications this means that the
actual temperature measured by an IR thermometer will be temperature of the clothing and not the skin
temperature. Emissivity (explained first in this section) is another issue with clothes that has to be considered.
There is also the simple chance that the measured temperature is adequate – for example, in a cold winter
human hand can appear at temperatures not too close to the well known +37°C.
I consider using MLX90614AAA to measure temperature within car compartment, but I am
embarrassed about the Sun light that may hit the module. Is it a significant issue?
Special care is taken to cut off the visible light spectra as well as the NIR (near IR) before it reaches the
sensitive sensor die. Even more, the glass (in most cases) is not transparent to the IR radiation used by the
MLX90614. Glass has temperature and really high emissivity in most cases – it is “black” for IR of interest.
Overall, Sun behind a window is most likely to introduce relatively small errors. Why is it not completely
eliminated after all? Even visible light partially absorbed in the filter of the sensor has some heating potential
and there is no way that the sensor die will be “blind” for that heating right in front of it.
