Improve accuracy & reduce power with our shunt voltage references
Low IQ and high precision for your power and signal chain applications
We offer a wide variety of shunt voltage references (VREFs) for use in precision signal chain and optocoupler flyback converter applications. Our low-power shunt VREFs help your system meet US DoE, EU CoC and other industry standby power requirements. Our high accuracy shunt VREFs provide precision in demanding system requirements for applications using high-resolution data converters. We offer shunt VREFs for battery-operated and loop-powered industrial sensing applications in factory, building automation and smart meters, as well as AEC-Q100 qualified devices for automotive applications in hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles. Our devices meet the needs of other applications such as current sources, voltage monitors or LED drivers.
