App note: Using and understanding voltage references

Posted on Sunday, August 26th, 2012 in app notes by DP

This tutorial on voltage references covers theory and how it works in practice:

When specifying a reference, keep in mind that initial accuracy, temperature coefficient and long-term stability all play a role in overall accuracy of the finished product. By taking some care in applying the reference, and by avoiding some key pitfalls, the reference’s inherent accuracy can be preserved.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
  • Geoff: Is it still Sunday somewhere? If so, yes please.
