As the world grows ever smarter, the use of electronic systems in industrial, consumer, home automation and other areas has become progressively commonplace. With this trend comes the increasing need for the electronic systems to be aware of elements of the operating environment, whether it be a refrigerator making sure to keep the milk cold, a water heater ensuring the shower is not too hot or too cold or a glucose meter knowing that the ambient temperature is within the specified range for correct test strip operation, temperature sensing is everywhere.
