Thermistor Design Tool,
offering complete resistance vs temperature table (R-T table) computation, other helpful methods to
derive temperature and example C-code.
The TMP61 linear thermistor offers linearity and
consistent sensitivity across temperature to enable simple and accurate methods for temperature
conversion. The low power consumption and a small thermal mass of the device minimize the impact of
With built-in fail-safe behaviors at high temperatures and powerful immunity to
environmental variation, these devices are designed for a long lifetime of high performance. The
small size of the TMP6 series also allows for close placement to heat sources and quick response
Take advantage of benefits over NTC thermistors such as no extra linearization circuitry,
minimized calibration, less resistance tolerance variation, larger sensitivity at high
temperatures, and simplified conversion methods to save time and memory in the processor.
The TMP61 is currently available in a 0402
footprint-compatible X1SON package, a 0603 footprint-compatible SOT-5X3 package, and a 2-pin
through-hole TO-92S package.
