The information is presented on the development of nuclear quadrupole resonace thermometry instruments at Yuzhnoye SDO and other Ukrainian companies. The problems are analyzed arising at the creation of standard wide-band nuclear quadrupole resonance temperature meters, the ways to overcome them, and the possibilities of improving due to the use of modern integrated electronics. It is shown that the methods of building the instruments based on nuclear quadrupole resonance proposed and implemented in Ukraine are not inferior to the foreign ones.
