# Transfer function for a temperature sensor

I have a STLM20 temperature sensor with the following transfer function:

$$V_{0}=\frac{-11.69\text{mV}}{C \cdot T} + 1.8663 \text{V}$$

I have solved it for $T$ and it should be:

$$T=85.543\cdot (1.8663-V_{0})$$

Is this correct?

• It is correct and strictly speaking this is a math question - applied algebra. – Andy aka Apr 3 '14 at 20:46
• Technically that's a scaling equation, not a transfer function. – Matt Young Apr 3 '14 at 20:52
• @MattYoung I think this could accurately be described as the inverse transfer function of the sensor, since it gives degrees C as a function of volts. – Spehro Pefhany Apr 3 '14 at 20:54
