The Top 10 Temperature Sensors

July 25, 2017admin

Sensing and controlling the intensity of heat present in a substance or object is a fundamental function of nearly every electronic application. A temperature sensor is a device used to measure the amount of heat energy generated by an object or system. These devices are usually implemented as RTDs (resistance temperature detectors), thermocouples or thermistors. When selecting a temperature sensor, designers should consider the device to be measured, temperature range, accuracy, response time, stability, and sensitivity.

Among the most popular temperature sensors on SnapEDA, most are thermocouples and thermistors that have an operating temperature range of –40°C to 125°C, high precision and low voltage operation, low self-heating and large capacitive loads. A few are integrated digital or analog temperature sensors — temperature sensor ICs — which can operate over a temperature range of -55°C to +150°C, with some even combining analogue-sensing circuitry with digital input/output and have a two-wire digital interface.

 

Let’s take a look at the Top 10 temperature sensors on SnapEDA!

 

Note: this data was collected via SnapEDA’s analytics by looking at downloads from its part model library (symbols, footprints, and 3D models). Millions of parts are evaluated on SnapEDA annually, however, if a part isn’t in our database it will not show up on this list. We’re continually increasing coverage and will update this list periodically!
