LT1634 output current

Hi! I am not able to see in the datasheet the maximum output current of this opamp. Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Enrique,

    There is no Maximum output current for this Shunt Voltage Reference, because the only thing you may need to be concerned is how you'll limit the current flowing in the voltage reference to 20mA (would not be the maximum but specs in the DS is tested until this limit). 

    So to answer your question, as long as you can limit the current going in the reference within Minimum Operating Current and 20mA you can take load current as much as the supply voltage can give. But you should also take note that increasing the load current will cause increase voltage drop in the series resistor.
