Abstract

In this paper we describe a novel microhotplate temperature sensor calibration technique suitable for Built-In Self Test. The technique only requires short-term temperature stability from the four-wire polysilicon heater/temperature sensors that are commonly used in microhotplates, and relies on the long term temperature stability of different types of temperature sensors, which may not be suitable for direct calibration.
