TI Temperature Measurement Videos

TI, or Texas Instruments, is one of the world’s most prolific and largest makers of temperature sensors. They make all kinds but their sensors are mostly in the form of Integrated Circuit semiconductors. TI also does an exceptional job in educating users how their devices work and how they can be interfaced and incorporated in measurement systems. Especially useful are the videos showing how some of their other integrated circuit modules can be used with external temperature sensors, like Thermocouples, RTDs and Thermistors. Here’s an example of an interesting one: Contactless Temperature Measurement Made Simple – TMP006 by Texas Instruments … Continue reading

Semiconductor Vendors

Semiconductor thermometers are usually produced in the form of ICs, Integrated Circuits. There are many types, sizes and models. Most are quite small and their fundamental design results from the fact that semiconductor diodes have voltage-current characteristics that are temperature sensitive. (That means that semiconductor triodes or transistors are also temperature sensitive.) Needless to say, these devices have temperature measurement ranges that are small compared to thermocouples and RTDs, but, they can be quite accurate (e.g. ± 0.5°C or so) and inexpensive and very easy to interface with other electronics for display and control. Listed below are links to some … Continue reading
