Temperature Sensors

  • Jeong-Yeol Yoon


In the previous chapters, we have learned about the very basic building blocks for constructing an electronic circuit—resistors, diodes, and transistors. In this chapter, we will learn how these basic components can be used as transducers to sense physical variables (or physical sensors).
