I need to read and display temperature from a G_1396 Thermistor
http://www.specsensors.com/pdfs/ntc_radial_glass.pdf

I'm not sure where to start, the temperature range is non-linear so not sure how to calculate the temp based on the voltage dropped across it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!!

There is a formula for characterizing a thermistor.  You use the voltage across the thermistor to calculate the resistance and the formulas to calculate the temperature from the resistance.

Thanks! that helped.

Your post led me to this,

Think I have enough now to at least set something on fire.  ]:D
Thanks again!

EDIT
And here is a good tutorial
