One of our new designs, requires us to implement RTD & Thermocouple measurement circuit.
We need to get a accuracy of better than "0.2% of FSR" over the operating temperature range of "-20°C to 60°C".
We have looked at CN0287 board & planning to use the same circuit in our board if the required accuracy is met.
The CN0287 specification says that accuracy of 0.5°C. Is this accuracy guaranteed over a specific temperature range?
For our accuracy analysis , we have identified the error introducing components as below :
RTD measurement :
Due to ratio-metric cancellation, change in excitation current & ADC reference voltage cancel out each other. Thermo-couple measurement :
Please let us know if we have missed out any parameter in our analysis.
Also, it will be helpful if you can share any document related to accuracy analysis done on CN0287.
Looking forward to your response.

I have attached accuracy analysis document for our circuit based on CN0287. Only major change with respect to CN0287 is that we have changed our reference voltage to 2.5V (We are planning to use ADR3425 instead of ADR3440). This change is to fall in line with the "Absolute analog input voltage range" mentioned in the AD7193 datasheet when the RTD resistance goes up to 5KΩ.
It would really help us if you can review our calculations.
Please let us know, if you need any clarifications.
