A comparative analysis of different Thermocouples temperature Vs output response is provided. Different linearizers with their nonlinearity are compared with the general response of thermocouples is also given for universality. A Neural Network based solution in the analogue and digital domains is proposed the analysis will help designers to choose this linearization technique best suited for a given application.
