Title: Postopek in vezje za nadzor temperature [SL], Procedure and Circuit for Temperature Control [EN]
Description: The subject of the submitted invention is a procedure and circuit for temperature control, which uses an existing testing infrastructure based on the IEEE 1149.4 protocol for data transmission, corresponding to the measured temperature and their comparison to reference values. This way the need for using dedicated lines for the transmission of temperature measurements is eliminated. By selecting voltage thresholds of n comparators (17) in the selected analogue border modules of n elements, which meet the IEEE 1149.4 specifications, a simple n-bit A/D con- verter is implemented. It is used for processing signals, corresponding to the measured temperature. For connecting the temperature sensor terminals (1), (2), or (5) are used.
