Part Number: TMP61
I have a question about TMP61 thermistor resistance @25oC.
Datasheet says it is 10Kohms typical, 9.9Kohms minimum and 10.1Kohms maximum.
However, in the page of “TMP6 Table” in “TMP6131 System Parameter Calculator v1.0”, it different from the datasheet spec as follows.
On the other hand, in the “NTC table”, NTC resistance @25oC is 10Kohms typical, 9.9Kohms minimum and 10.1Kohms maximum, it is the same as TMP61 datasheet spec.
Why does “TMP6 Table” in “TMP6131 System Parameter Calculator v1.0” use different room temperature resistance value from datasheet spec?
According to “TMP6131 System Parameter Calculator v1.0”, TMP61 voltage error @ room temperature looks larger than NTC. But TMP61 datasheet says room temperature resistance accuracy is tha same as NTC, 10Kohms +/- 1%. I am confused.
The exact resistance of TMP61 varies slightly depending on biasing method, this is nature of silicon thermistor. For example, in the table you reference the TMP61 is biased with a 200uA current source. The following table shows TMP61 biased in a 2.5V resistor divider and it shows different R values at 25C.
However, even in the 25C table you show for TMP61 in calculator tool, the tolerance at 25C is still +/-1%. ((Rnom - Rmin)/(Rnom) * 100)
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
