Component Oven Temperature Controller
Mark DeCou and Jeff Nelson
Advisor: Dr. G. Dempsey
Critical properties of some electronic circuits are prone to drift due
to changes in ambient temperature. A component oven is a small chamber
which encloses the temperature-sensitive components in such a circuit.
A heat source elevates the temperature of the air inside the chamber to
a stable point above the expected maximum ambient temperature. In this
way, the temperature of the sensitive circuit element remains constant,
and the circuit no longer drifts. The oven controller determines the steady-state
accuracy of the oven temperature.
