Thermistor

Thermistors are resistors made from metal oxides, whose resistance changes with temperature. Thermistors are the cheapest temperature sensor you can buy: they are common in consumer-grade applications. Thermistors are highly nonlinear. They are typically available from -40° to 150°C, with best accuracy between 0° to 100°C, although some specialized versions have wider temperature ranges.
