Definitions for "THERMISTOR"
A temperature transducer constructed from semiconductor material and for which temperature is converted into a resistance, usually with negative slope and highly nonlinear. Its usual applications are as a nonlinear circuit element (either alone or in combination with a heater), as a temperature compensator in a measurement circuit, or as a temperature measurement element.
See Resistance Type Device
It is a resistor, the action of whose depends upon changes of its resistance material with a change in the temperature.
