Single-chip digital IR temperature sensor

Joe writes:  TI have announced a tiny (1.6mm sq), low power and low cost (~$2) IR temperature sensor

Enables contactless temperature measurement in portable and consumer electronic applications

Developed through TI’s expertise in MEMS technology, the TMP006 is the first of a new class of ultra-small, low power, and low cost passive infrared temperature sensors. It has 90% lower power consumption and is more than 95% smaller than existing solutions, making contactless temperature measurement possible in completely new markets and applications.
