Thermistors…Linear? How to make them so.

In my last video I showed off Lab 7 for EE445L which was the digital thermometer. To measure the temperature I used a thermistor which is a resistor that changes resistance based on the temperature.

These are non linear devices which make it a pain to get accurate readings directly.
