Semitec FT: smallest & fastest NTC thermistor
10 November 2021
Semitec FT with pencil for scale
When an application demands a miniature, rapid response temperature sensor, Semitec’s FT thin film thermistor is the first & only choice. The world’s thinnest temperature sensor, the FT simply outperforms other SMD thermistors with an exceptionally fast response time & high heat capability.
Its miniature size enables it to monitor IGBT junction temperatures in e-vehicle and high-power applications. The small footprint (0201) also allows in medical devices and 'in-cell' battery monitoring.
FT thermistors are at the forefront of thin-film NTC thermistor technology. Mounted on a 150micron ceramic substrate, they create a very fast responding sensor (Tc = 0.5s).
In addition, the FT thin film thermistor can be used from -50°C to +350°C (a distinct advantage over other NTCs) offering opportunities in office automation, personal care and laser equipment.
FT thermistors can be laser-trimmed to very high accuracy for use in catheters, while glass passivation helps seal it against moisture ingress. Versions with axial or radial leads allow the use of standard soldering techniques.
