Abstract

Temperature sensing is an important technique in many technologies. In the automation and con- trol of manufacturing equipment, temperature sens- ing and control is especially critical. Conventional temperature sensing technologies rely on mecha- nisms which change with temperature: 1) Resistance of the sensor changes as the tem- perature changes. Thermistors are the most common example of this type of sensor.
