Offset: Temperature Coefficient total in PGA using AD797 and ADG412

Hi all:

Do anyone know how the calculation of the total temperature coefficient show in "Analog Device" literature of PGA, using AD797 and ADG412, increases from 0.6uV/ºC to 1.6uV/ºC? There is a 1uV/ºC part, not belonging to the AD797B, I am not able to work out. Any help is appreciated

Thank you

    Hi Roberto,

    Thanks for your interest in using ADI products. According to the MT-072, offset temperature drift is affected by the change in bias current and RON. Therefore we need the following data to compute for this additional 1 uV/ºC offset temp drift.

    From AD797 datasheet:

    The mini tutorial is using the B-grade for AD797. From the graph, we can interpret it as:

    For 25 ºC, the Ibias is equal to 0.9 uA.

    For Tmax (85 ºC), the Ibias is equal to 2 uA

    From ADG412 datasheet:

    For 25 ºC, Ron = 35 ohms

    For 85 ºC, Ron = 45 ohms

    Given this, we can now calculate the additional drift as shown below:

    :Let me know if you need anything else.

    Best regards,
