# Q10. On the AD4111/AD4112/AD4114/AD4115 what’s the equivalent TUE (total uncompensated error) spec across different input voltage ranges for example ±10V, ±5V, ±2.5V or 0-10V, 0-5V, 0-2.5V?

### Q10. On the AD4111/AD4112/AD4114/AD4115 what’s the equivalent TUE (total uncompensated error) spec across different input voltage ranges for example ±10V, ±5V, ±2.5V or 0-10V, 0-5V, 0-2.5V?

AD4111/AD41112/AD4114/AD4115 are specified for a TUE spec at ±10V full scale range. When input span is reduced the error will change as TUE is specified as a percentage of Full-scale range (%FSR).

In order to calculate the equivalent TUE spec for smaller ranges, we would take the assumption that gain-error and offset error both account for 50% of the total TUE. Please take note that this method provides only an estimated value, the actual performance could be better or worse as we only guaranteed the TUE spec at ±10V input range.

We can start by working through the errors in mV or V initially and then translating to a final TUE Specification

If we take an input span of ±10V and take the TUE from the datasheet specification for ±10V input at 25°C.

Offset error = 0.03% of 20V span =>6mV

Full-Scale error at +10V (after correcting for offset error) = 0.03% of 20V span =>6mV

TUE = (6mV+6mV)/20 *100 = 0.06%

For AD4114/AD4115, TUE specs at 25°C is specified as 0.07%. Taking the same steps as above will give you

Offset error = 0.035% of 20V span =>7mV

Full-Scale error at +10V (after correcting for offset error) = 0.035% of 20V span =>7mV

TUE = (7mV+7mV)/20 *100 = 0.07%

Table 2 shows the TUE estimation at 25°C across different ranges. The same approach can be applied when calculating TUE across different temperature.
