# Is there a difference between a tempco resistor and a thermistor?

That is, other than just the nomenclature.

• both "can" mean to be used for compensation. – Sunnyskyguy EE75 Apr 16 at 21:47
• VISHAY Corp has 5ppm/degree C resistors People love those Tempcos. – analogsystemsrf Apr 17 at 0:22

• You can use HTML &deg; for the degrees symbol. Also &Omega; and &mu; are handy. The are not rendered in the comments. – Transistor Apr 16 at 22:13
• Also if you want a degree symbol that does render in comments, backslash, string, hat, backslash, "circ", backslash, string. Gives you $^\circ$. Hope that makes sense. Not sure how to write mathjaxx commands without them appearing rendered. – K H Apr 17 at 0:27
