REF02: TEMP pin

Hello,

I have a question about the TEMP pin of REF02.

The explanation of the TEMP pin has the description in page15 of the REF02 data sheet.

There is a description that recommends the OpAmp of a low bias like AD8641 to be used for here.

Is this bias current allowed up to how many pA?

Best Regards,

  • Hi Mr.K,

    For a single supply configuration, Vs = +5V. The input bias current of the AD8641 at 25°C is 0.25pA(typical value) to 1pA(maximum value). However, if the ambient temperature is ranging between -40°C to 125°C the maximum input bias current of AD8641 can go up to 180 pA. Kindly refer to the table below.

    Below is the input bias current range for a dual supply configuration, Vs=+/-13V.

    In addition to that, the reason why the TEMP pin of the REF02 needs to be buffered with an op amp with a low input bias current is to minimize the current being drawn from the TEMP pin. It helps to prevent the voltage output of the REF02 to fall out of regulation.
