Product Details

The LT1460 is a micropower bandgap reference that combines very high accuracy and low drift with low power dissipation and small package size. This series reference uses curvature compensation to obtain low temperature coefficient and trimmed precision thin-film resistors to achieve high output accuracy. The reference will supply up to 20mA with excellent line regulation characteristics, making it ideal for precision regulator applications.

This series reference provides supply current and power dissipation advantages over shunt references that must idle the entire load current to operate. Additionally, the LT1460 does not require an output compensation capacitor, yet is stable with capacitive loads. This feature is important where PC board space is a premium or fast settling is demanded. In the event of a reverse battery connection, these references will not conduct current, and are therefore protected from damage.

The LT1460 is available in the 8-lead MSOP, SO, PDIP and the 3-lead TO-92 and SOT23 packages.
