Selecting the Right NTC Thermistor
Negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors provide design engineers with a highly-accurate temperature sensor solution. Selecting the best NTC thermistor for any given application can be a challenge as manufacturers have developed a plethora of different NTC thermistors that differ in design, size, type, material, mounts, performance, accuracy and optimization for various applications.
Design engineers and those involved in the procurement of electronic components - as well as all involved in the development process, should understand how these temperature sensors work, and which ones will best help them prevent system overheating and extend the overall life of their design.
