A video from Texas Instruments provides automotive temperature sensor systems training. During this training, viewers will learn about temperature sensor ICs and automotive applications. Automotive manufacturers are placing temperature sensors in transmissions, USB ports, displays, HEV/EV batterypacks, and many other automotive systems.
This video focus’ on the specific locations of temperature sensor sockets, the system level benefits of using temperature sensor solutions, and include a detailed discussion on thermistor replacement. After this training, viewers will hopefully understand the types of temperature sensors used in automotive electronic systems, and will also understand the advantages of temperature sensor ICs compared to thermistors.
The video starts by reviewing circuit topologies that use digital output temperature sensors.
During the video, Texas Instruments provides a system level overview of the automotive use case and a more detailed block diagram discussion. The second component of this training will be a comparison between TI's temperature sensor ICs, and thermistors.
The video also gives a brief overview of thermistors, dive into the technical advantages of temperature sensor ICs, and discuss a USB charging port use case.
