What is thermal voltage?
In a semiconductor, electrons are at rest state if the temperature is 0K or we can say that the energy state is 0. As we increase the temperature, electrons starts getting energy proportional to the temperature and this constant of proportionality is k, the Boltzmann constant. kT/q is the voltage corresponding to this energy. Since the cause of this voltage is temperature, it is so called Thermal Voltage. The thermal voltage is Vt= kT/q , and this is further simplified to T/11600.
In other words, the thermal voltage computes the flow of electric current and electrostatic potential across a P-N junction based on the temperature(T), the Boltzmann constant(k) and the elementary charge(q).
How to Calculate Voltage Equivalent of Temperature?
Voltage Equivalent of Temperature calculator uses Volt-Equivalent of Temperature = Room Temperature/11600 to calculate the Volt-Equivalent of Temperature, Voltage Equivalent of Temperature is the equivalent value which can be found out by dividing the temperature value by 11600. Volt-Equivalent of Temperature is denoted by V_{temp} symbol.
