Thermistor

A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance is dependent on temperature, more so than in standard resistors. The word is a combination of thermal and resistor. Thermistors are widely used as inrush current limiters, temperature sensors (negative temperature coefficient or NTC type typically), self-resetting overcurrent protectors, and self-regulating heating elements (positive temperature coefficient or PTC type typically).

SMD Reflow Hot Plate

“A DIY temperature controlled Hot Plate for soldering SMD components. Story Over the years, electronic components have changed both in terms of size and also their footprint. More and more designs incorporate or solely use surface mount components (SMD) rather …
