Welcome to the NTC Thermistor Curve Computation Programs of Vishay
If you want to compute a resistance temperature curve for a well defined Vishay NTC thermistor part number,
you can download our program "My Vishay NTC curve" here
(The part numbers begin either with NTC , either with NTHS or can be 12 digit numbers beginning with 23,
or can have an analog structure to 01M1002J). For all such partnumbers,
"My Vishay NTC Curve" will provide you with a
spreadsheet of the resistance value vs Temperature, with flexible temperature steps, limits and units.
If, you prefer to explore the electrical capability of VISHAY based on the different mechanical executions,
you can download one or several programs hereunder.
The principles of these programs are the following:
1) First, select a component type:
- Epoxy-coated leaded
- Surface-mount (SMD) and then case size (0402, 0603, 0805: the curves are different)
- Glass-encapsulated housing (leaded diode package and SMD MELF type have identical curves)
- NTC ceramic chips, NTC assemblies, NTC leaded with B3984 K low tolerance
2) Choose either the degree Fahrenheit (°F) or degree Celsius (°C) temperature scale.
3) Click on the desired links below.
4) Once you are in a particular program, follow the user mode detailed in the first sheet: "user mode".
Each Excel® file has 2 sheets: a "user mode" and an "RTCOEF" sheet with the computed table.
You will need to input the reference resistance value and tolerance for a given reference temperature:
The standard values and the ranges to choose from are shown in table 1 in the sheet "user mode".
You will also need to input a B25/85 value, which must be chosen from table 1.
For epoxy leaded types, the Ref. Temp. can be selected between -55 °C and 150 °C (-67 °F to 302 °F).
If you need the standard R(T) curve, just type 25 °C (77 °F) as the reference temperature.
For epoxy types, the Ref. resistance value can be selected depending on the chosen B25/85 value.
If standard curves are needed, you must choose one of the R @ 25 °C (77 °F) existing values in table 1.
For SMD and glass-encapsulated types, the reference temperature is fixed at 25 °C (77 °F) and the reference resistance
values are fixed depending on the chosen B25/85 value.
It is not possible to type values not shown in table 1.
For SMD and glass-encapsulated types, the standard P/N and 12NC will also be indicated.

If you prefer not to run our Excel file on your computer, you may request information by E-mail. Please send part
number with minimum and maximum temperatures, temperature step, temperature unit (default are minimum, maximum of temperature
range and 5 °C) to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify whether you would like the data to be supplied in a file with .csv, .pdf or .txt extension. Vishay's engineers
will come back to you as soon as possible with the requested files.

The NTC Thermistor Curve Computation programs may be used to determine certain capabilities of Vishay NTC thermistors.
Utilizing data provided by the user, the programs can generate non-standard R/T tables for such thermistors. Please consult
your local Vishay representative with any questions.
