refer to electronics devices that are capable of sensing temperature and provide an output in digital form. Temperature sensors are categorized into two types: Contact Sensor and Non-Contact Sensor. Contact sensor touch the object to measure the temperature generated whereas Non-Contact sensor measures the temperature without having physical contact with the object. Presently, Temperature sensors are used in electronics devices such as laptops and smartphones among others to monitor battery and ambient temperature. This conserves the battery life of the devices and prevents the damage of expensive components used in the devices.The report ‘Temperature Sensor Market’
