A voltage divider: heat sensor

Added by Bill Phillips on Feb 20, 2008

A graphic showing an example of a voltage divider. A thermistor is connected in parallel to a resistor and an input voltage. The output voltage is the voltage across the resistor. The output is high if the temperature is high.

This resource is from the unit Voltage Dividers which is part of Absorb Electronics.
