  1. thermistor, thermal resistor(noun)

    a semiconductor device made of materials whose resistance varies as a function of temperature; can be used to compensate for temperature variation in other components of a circuit


  1. thermal resistor

    A thermal resistor, also known as a thermistor, is a type of sensor used for measuring temperature. This resistor changes its resistance value depending on the temperature. There are two types, NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) which means the resistance decreases as temperature increases, and PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) where the resistance increases as temperature increases. They are widely used in various applications such as temperature sensing, timing, circuits protection, and temperature compensation.
