App note: Voltage reference calibration and voltage ADC usage

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

An app note from Atmel,  voltage reference calibration and voltage ADC usage (PDF!): Features • Voltage reference calibration. - 1.100V +/-1mV (typical) and < 90ppm/°C drift from –10°C to +70°C. • Interrupt controlled voltage ADC sampling. • Calculation of voltage and temperature from voltage ADC measurements. Some of the new Atmel...

A look inside a ’70s voltage and current standard

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

SQKYBeaver did a teardown of a Techtron Standards type 51 voltage and current standard: Absolutely amazing inside! The wires to the front panel look like the were loomed by a professional Spacecraft mechanic. every one individually numbered it must have taken hours. only 4 rc4136 quad opamps for all this functionality,...

Erl’s voltage reference

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

Erl shared his voltage reference project in the forum:      I had almost 6 x 6 cm left over on a 10 x 10 board I was ordering from Seeed Studios, so inspired by the Mr. Ref voltage reference project, I made something similar. It's based on the MAX6126 2.048...
