May 11, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Sensirion' SHT20 humidity and temperature sensor is a low-cost member of the SHT2x family of sensors.

With a typical accuracy of 3% RH, the new sensor is especially suitable for price-sensitive applications and shows that high production volumes can be combined with low cost and proven quality. The SHT20 humidity and temperature sensor boasts the same impressive features as the standard version. It exhibits high long-term stability, full calibration and both digital and analog interfaces. The sensor is based on the unique CMOSens technology, which enables high production volumes with excellent value for money. The minimum order quantity is 1,500. Despite being significantly less costly than its predecessor, depending on purchase volume, the sensor offers excellent temperature measurement accuracy of ±0.4 °C and a measuring range of -40 to +120 °C. With a 3x3-mm footprint and 1.1-mm profile, it is one of the smallest sensors in its class, claims the manufacturer.
