Industry's smallest linear thermistors

High-sensitivity and single-point calibration for high accuracy

Our thermistors provide the benefits of silicon-based linear thermistor technology at the same low cost and small size of traditional NTC thermistors. These devices maintain high sensitivity enabling up to 50% higher accuracy than NTC thermistors. Simplify your design with thermistors that eliminate the need for additional linearization circuitry and multi-point calibration. In addition, unlike NTC thermistors, these linear thermistor sensors offer the ability to calibrate with only a room temperature offset, optimize resolution and reduce the impact of system noise in software, reducing the need for external components or multi-point calibration to achieve accurate measurements. Visit our applications page to learn more about how these thermistor sensor replacements extend the limits of motors, power solutions and processors in automotive and industrial systems.
