SLOS954A July 2018 – December 2018 INA253
The INA253 REF1 and REF2 pins allow for the midpoint of the output voltage to be adjusted for system circuitry connections to analog to digital converters (ADCs) or other amplifiers. The REF pins are designed to be connected directly to supply, ground, or a low-impedance reference voltage. The REF pins can be connected together and biased using a resistor divider to achieve a custom output voltage. If the amplifier is used in this configuration, as shown in Figure 38, use the output as a differential signal with respect to the resistor divider voltage. For most accurate results, do not use single-ended measurements at the amplifier output because the internal impedance shifts can adversely affect device performance specifications.
