App note: Using LT5400 high precision resistor neworks in high precision analog designs

Posted on Sunday, July 15th, 2012 in app notes by DP

 

Here is a design note from Liner Technology explaining how using their LT5400 matched resistor networks in your analog design can improve it’s precision by an order of magnitude.

The actual performance of precision amplifiers and ADCs is often difficult to achieve since data sheet specifications assume ideal components. Carefully matched resistor networks, such as those supplied by the LT5400, enable precision matching orders of magnitude better than discrete components, ensuring data sheet specifications are met for precision ICs.

    are you guys using cookies to track what I’ve been looking at? its just so many coincidences…
    I was checking this out to improve the input amps to my LTC2440 last night.
