Temperature Measurement
Sensing temperature is important in many applications. The choice of sensor, from an IC package to a thermistor or other technology, depends on the engineer's needs for accuracy, precision, and ease of integration.

Thermistors - NTC

Thermistors - NTCThermistors-NTC sensors are resistive devices that have a negative temperature coefficient (NTC). This means their resistance drops with an increase in temperature. As their outputs are non-linear, NTC thermistors are used most often in applications that have some external signal conditioning and/or processing available.

Thermistors - PTC

Thermistors - PTCThermistors-PTC sensors are resistive devices that have a positive temperature coefficient (PTC). This means their resistance rises with an increase in temperature. PTC thermistors are often used for current limiting, thermal fusing, and temperature switching control applications.
