Radial Lead Resin Coated NTC Thermistor for Temperature Compensation

Why NTC Thermistor Is Use for Temperature Compensation?

NTC thermistor Temperature Compensation

Since all metals used for coil windings have a positive temperature coefficient of resistance, NTC thermistors 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.

Schematic drawing of a temperature compensation circuit of Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) using NTC thermistor as temperature sensor

For Liquid crystal displays LCD modules often a temperature compensation circuit is used, consisting of NTC thermistors and resistors. The NTC thermistor as main temperature-sensitive device with its characteristic resistance temperature curve provides a high driving voltage in the cold and a low driving voltage in the hot temperature region, compensating in this way the LCD temperature characteristic.
