Processor Temperature Control

The TL598 has two built in error amplifiers used for feedback control.  Error amplifier 2 is used for the temperature control section.  Temperature feedback comes from a thermistor inserted directly into the cold block located between the processor and thermoelectric device.  A bridge circuit and a differential amplifier (Q1D) provide signal conditioning for the temperature feedback.  A temperature set point is derived from a potentiometer (R5). The controller increases or decreases its output proportionally to compensate for the difference between temperature set point and the actual measured temperature.
