    Best way to stick a sensor to the top of an IC

    andrewj

      I've been looking around for the right search terms to use to find out how to stick a thermistor to the top of a 6mmx8mm chip (approx).

       

       

      I have plenty of Kapton tape so I could use that, but I'd have to stretch it across multiple parts to get it to stick - I know it's non-conductive but still.  And frankly, it's not that sticky really either - I don't want to be opening a case to keep re-applying tape.  Is there some useful cement or sticky stuff that I could use - maybe something that I could remove the sensor without damaging anything if I wanted to but was secure enough to last.  At the moment I have it held in place with some blu-tack at the edge of the board but it's not really resting properly on the IC.
