Negative Temperature Coefficient thermally sensitive semiconductor resistors, made of polycrystalline mixed oxide ceramics, show a decrease in resistance as temperature increases.
Changes in the resistance of the NTC thermistor can be brought about either externally by a change in ambient temperature or internally by self-heating resulting from a current flowing through the device.
All practical applications are based on this behavior. NTC thermistor is used for inrush current limiting surge suppressing, temperature measurement sensing compensation, etc.
NTC Thermistors Lineup
Power NTC thermistor can be a cost effective device to limit the amount of inrush current in a switching power supply or other devices when the power is first turned on. Power NTC thermistor limits surge current by functioning as a power resistor which drops from a high cold resistance to a low hot resistance when heated by the current flowing through it.
Inrush-current limiters power NTC thermistor protect circuits from undesirably high currents, suppressing high inrush current surges, while its resistance remains negligible low during continuous operation. Thanks to their low resistance in the operating state, Power NTC thermistor have a considerably lower power dissipation than the fixed resistors frequently used for this application.

Since all metals used for coil windings have a positive temperature coefficient of resistance, NTC thermistor are especially useful for compensating resistance changes in devices subjected to temperature variations.
Due to the high temperature coefficient of the thermistor as opposed to the low temperature coefficient of the copper, full compensation can be achieved by using a thermistor– resistor network. This network adds less than 15% to the total impedance of the circuit. Compensation of transistor amplifiers, crystal oscillators, etc. can be achieved by using similar methods.
