Thermistors are thermally sensitive resistors and have a negative (NTC) or positive (PTC) resistance/temperature coefficient. Their function is to exhibit a change in electrical resistance with a change in body temperature.

The components are available in formats like chips, discs, beads and probes, following the requirement.

NTCs are chosen when a continuous change of resistance is required over a wide temperature range. Fields of applications are:

  • NTC Thermistors for Temperature Sensing and Compensation
  • NTC Thermistors for Inrush Current Suppression
