In my application, I am using a MAX6699 for monitoring the temperature of the PCB. The chip supports four channels, whereas I am using only 2 for monitoring the PCB temperature (through P-N diode). Now I have an additional requirement of monitoring the temperature of the metal enclosure of my system also. Since I have 2 spare channels in the above device, my first choice would be to use that to do the job.
However, the P-N diode which I used CMPT3906 is SMD and cannot be used on the chassis for monitoring. And I couldn't find any other component which is both chassis-mountable and can interface to my sensor through a cable or some discrete wires. Can anybody suggest me a solution?
