The new linear thermistors cost a similar price to NTC thermistors while cutting design time, reducing component count and increasing performance. They provide reliable, highly accurate thermal measurements, especially at temperatures above 80°C. The linearity and accuracy of the thermistors allow single-point calibration to maximise system performance and simplify design.
TI’s thermistors have a very low typical drift of 0.5% for increased reliability of temperature measurements. They are one-tenth the size of similar silicon-based linear thermistors, with a low profile and small package area that allows positioning closer to thermal hot spots.
