In designing personal electronics, industrial or medical applications, engineers must address some of the same challenges: how to increase performance, add features and shrink form factors. Along with these considerations, they must carefully monitor temperature to ensure safety and protect systems and consumers from harm.
Another trend spanning numerous industries is the need to process more data from more sensors, further necessitating the importance of temperature measurement—not just to measure system or environmental conditions, but to compensate for other temperature-sensitive components in order to maintain both sensor and system accuracy.
As an added benefit, accurate temperature monitoring can increase system performance and reduce costs by removing the need to overdesign systems to compensate for inaccurate temperature measurements.
