Summary
This Application Note explains how to measure temperature using a J Type Thermocouple with a
PSoC. Following the principle, any thermocouple input can be measured.
Introduction
Thermocouples are widely used in industrial
applications for the following reasons:
They are robust
They measure over a wide range (-270°
to 3000° C)
They are available in a wide variety of
packages and probes
Thermocouple Principle
A thermocouple consists of two pieces of
dissimilar metals in the form of wire fused at one
end. This is called the hot junction. The other end
is connected to a measuring circuit. This is called
the cold junction. The difference in temperature
between the hot and cold junctions causes an
EMF to develop. This EMF can be measured by
the measuring circuit.
Because the thermocouple is a reference device,
the absolute temperature (hot junction) can be
measured only if the reference (cold junction) is
known. The reference temperature is called the
Cold Junction Temperature. Adding the
thermocouple equivalent EMF of this temperature
to the one measured from the thermocouple is
called Cold Junction Compensation.
There are two methods that can be used to
acquire an accurate temperature. Using a multiorder polynomial equation (Equation 1), the
temperature can be calculated accurately as
close as +0.02°C.
T = (a0 + a1V + a2V2 + ... + anVn) Equation 1
The polynomial coefficients for different types of
thermocouples can be found in Table-3 in the
Appendix.
This method is quite complicated and involves
high precision mathematics, which heavily taxes
the resources of an 8-bit device.
The second method is the use of lookup tables.
Here, we divide the whole measurement range of
the thermocouple into many regions and identify
the coefficient for each region. The higher the
number of regions, the better the accuracy. We
will use this method in this Application Note.
Steps Involved
The whole process can be broken into the
following steps.
1.
There are different types of thermocouples such
as J, K, T, R, and S just to name a few. Each
type has its own temperature coefficient and
range of measurement.
2.
3.
The output of the thermocouple is not linear
throughout the measurement range.

Junction Compensation voltage.

1. Find Cold Junction Compensation:
Many circuits can be used to measure the
reference temperature; Thermistor, RTD, and
Diode come to mind.
In this circuit, the LM335 Precision Temperature
Sensor is used to sense the Cold Junction
Temperature. This IC has a linear output of 10
mV/°C and can give excellent accuracy without
any calibration. The output of this IC is 0V at
absolute zero (0°K). At 0°C, the output voltage is
2.7315V (273.15°K). The LM335 output is
connected to P2[1], so that it can be directly
configured as an ADC input without using any
Continuous Time analog PSoC blocks.
A diode can also be used to sense room
temperature. Any common diode like 1N4148 can
be used. A diode exhibits a temperature
coefficient of –2.2 mV/°C. A single resistance can
be used to set the diode current. But the absolute
voltage will have some tolerance and will have to
be calibrated.
Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) is performed
while measuring Cold Junction Temperature.
CDS is explained in step #2. First, the ADC input
is shorted to AGND and the output measured.
The LM335 output is connected to the ADC input
and the ADC output is measured. The zero value
is subtracted from this value to get an offsetcorrected reading.
Now, considering a 12-bit ADC and full-scale
voltage of 1.3V (REFHI), the following equation
gives the LM335 voltage.
V = (1.3V / 2048) * ADC Count Equation 2
The LM335 output is at 10 mV/°C which modifies
the equation to:
T = (130 / 2048) * ADC Count Equation 3
This yields temperature directly (in °K). As the
output of LM335 at 0°C is 2.731V with reference
to VSS, and as ADC measurement is with
reference to AGND which is 2.6V, subtracting 13
from the calculated value will give Cold Junction
Temperature directly in °C.
From this temperature, find the corresponding
thermocouple voltage from table reference
(coldJunction[]) in the Appendix.
When we have to measure such small voltages,
the problems of offset error and signal-to-noise
ratio come into consideration. To overcome these
problems we will use CDS and Infinite Impulse
Response (IIR) filter techniques.
Correlated Double Sampling (CDS):
This method reduces offset errors present in the
signal-conditioning amplifiers and the ADC. The
following steps are involved.
1.
2.
3.
Short the inputs. Measure ADC output.
Store as Zero.
Connect inputs to thermocouple.
Measure output. Store as Signal.
Subtract Zero from Signal.
Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) Filter:
This is a low-pass filter implemented in software.
This averages and effectively reduces the noise
from the input signal.
In this application, the IIR filter constant has been
set to 4. This results in poor response time but
very good noise rejection. Most industrial
applications that measure high temperatures do
not need fast response time. For faster response,
the filter constant can be reduced.
For details on modifying the filter constant and
other IIR techniques, see Application Note
AN2099 “Single-Pole IIR Filters. To Infinity
And Beyond!”
The ADC output after CDS is passed through the
low-pass IIR filter. From the output of this filter,
the thermocouple voltage can be calculated by
the following formula:
volts = ADC Counts * Range / fullScale
Equation 4
For calibration purposes, the range is set to 50
mV and fullScale is the ADC Counts when input is
50 mV. For better resolution, ADC Counts is
multiplied by 5,000 and divided by fullScale. The
resolution of the result is 10 uV/count.
3. Cold Junction Compensation:
2. Measure Thermocouple Voltage:
The thermocouple input is fed to an INSAMP
User Module with a gain of 16. The output of J
Type Thermocouple is 69.55 mV at 1200°C.
3/16/2004
The output of the INSAMP is roughly 1.11V at
this temperature. This is fed to an ADCINC12
User Module.
Revision A
Add the Cold Junction Compensation voltage
calculated in step #2 to the measured
thermocouple voltage to get a cold junction
compensated output.

AN2148
4. Find Coefficient:
Let us consider a J Type Thermocouple. The
EMF table of J Type Thermocouple can be found
in Tables-1 and 2 in the Appendix.
First, we have to build a lookup table from the
EMF table of the J Type Thermocouple. Let us
divide the whole table into 0.64 mV divisions and
identify the coefficient for each division.
Compiling them will give us the lookup table.
As resolution of the measured voltage is 10 uV,
the coefficient is also calculated for °C/10 uV.
Multiply this fractional number by 10,000 to
convert it to an integer.
As the measured voltage is in tens of microvolts,
the thermocouple voltage is divided by 64 to get
the lookup table offset. Sixty-four has been
selected because it is easier to perform the
division by rotating the voltage 6 times to the
right.
The procedure of building the lookup table can be
found in the Excel .xls file attached with the
project.
5. Find Temperature:
Once the thermocouple voltage and coefficient
are known, temperature can be calculated by
multiplying the thermocouple voltage by the
sensitivity
coefficient
for
that
type
of
thermocouple. Some examples of thermocouple
sensitivies are given in Table 1.

ReadAdc()
ProcessAdc()
CheckCalibration()
ReadAdc():
This routine reads from both the thermocouple
and LM335, performs CDS and IIR filtering and
updates vTc and vColdJunction.
ProcessAdc():
This
routine
calculates
Cold
Junction
Temperature from vColdJunction, performs the
Cold Junction Compensation on vTc and
calculates the temperature after finding the
coefficient. It then updates the LCD display with
the
measured
temperature
and
room
temperature.
If the voltage is positive, the coefficient is taken
from the positive lookup table. If the voltage is
negative, the coefficient is taken from the
negative lookup table.
The total time for calculation of temperature and
updating the display is 2.7 mS at a CPU speed of
24 MHz.
CheckCalibration():
This routine performs calibration. A push-button
switch connected to P2[3] is used for Full Scale
Calibration. Another push button connected to
P2[5] is used for Zero Calibration.
When the Zero Calibration switch is pressed, the
value of vTc is stored as zero.
When the Full-Scale Calibration switch is
pressed, the value of vTc is stored as fullScale.
Calibration:
In PSoC Designer, some assembly routines have
been written for 16-bit multiplication and 24-bit
division. These routines are called from C. This is
to minimize the time taken in math operations.
For details on 16-bit multiplication, refer to
Application Note AN2038, and for details on 24bit division, refer to Application Note AN2101.
To support signed division, first the dividend is
tested to determine if it is negative. If it is
negative, the sign is saved, the value is made
positive and division is performed. Then the sign
is restored by 2's complementing the result.

Software
Revision A
Though CDS takes care of the zero offset error,
for optimum accuracy, a software zero calibration
has been added. This takes care of any residual
offset error.
Apply 0 mV at the thermocouple input
Wait until the display stabilizes
Press the Zero Calibration push button
Apply 50 mV at the thermocouple input
Wait until the display stabilizes
Press the Full-Scale Calibration push
button
The instrument is now calibrated and accurate to
+2°C. For test results see Table-4 in the
Appendix.

AN2148
The zero calibration procedure can be omitted if
some inaccuracy can be tolerated. In this case,
the error can go up to +4°C.

Conclusion
Using the described method, temperature can be
measured for any thermocouple input. As there
are minimal external components, a low-cost
temperature controller can be built using a PSoC,
and adding some keys, a 4-digit LED display, and
one or two relay outputs. The controller can be
designed to measure various thermocouples like
J, K, R, T, etc. A feature can be implemented to
select the thermocouple and program the set
point using the front panel keys.
