This temperature sensing circuit uses a resistor in series with a positive–temperature–coefficient (PTC) thermistor to form a voltage–divider, which has the effect of producing an output voltage that is linear over temperature. The circuit uses an op amp in a non–inverting configuration with inverting reference to offset and amplify the signal, which helps to utilize the full ADC resolution and increase measurement accuracy.
