Most modern signal-conditioning systems calibrate errors at room temperature. However, calibration of errors that result from a change in temperature is normally difficult and costly. Therefore, minimize these errors by choosing high-precision components, such as the INA821, that have improved specifications in critical areas that impact the precision of the overall system. Figure 64 shows an example application.

Resistor-adjustable devices (such as the INA821) show the lowest gain error in G = 1 because of the inherently well-matched drift of the internal resistors of the differential amplifier. At gains greater than 1 (for instance, G = 10 V/V or G = 100 V/V), the gain error becomes a significant error source because of the contribution of the resistor drift of the 24.7-kΩ feedback resistors in conjunction with the external gain resistor. Except for very high gain applications, the gain drift is by far the largest error contributor compared to other drift errors, such as offset drift.

The INA821 offers excellent gain error over temperature for both G > 1 and G = 1 (no external gain resistor). Table 5 summarizes the major error sources in common INA applications and compares the three cases of G = 1 (no external resistor) and G = 10 (5.49-kΩ external resistor) and G = 100 (499-Ω external resistor). All calculations are assuming an output voltage of V_{OUT} = 1 V. Thus, the input signal V_{DIFF} (given by V_{DIFF}= V_{OUT}/G) exhibits smaller and smaller amplitudes with increasing gain G. In this example, V_{DIFF} = 1 mV at G = 1000. All calculations refer the error to the input for easy comparison and system evaluation. As Table 5 shows, errors generated by the input stage (such as input offset voltage) are more dominant at higher gain, while the effects of output stage are suppressed because they are divided by the gain when referring them back to the input. the gain error and gain drift error are much more significant for gains greater than 1 because of the contribution of the resistor drift of the 24.7-kΩ feedback resistors in conjunction with the external gain resistor. In most applications, static errors (absolute accuracy errors) can readily be removed during calibration in production, while the drift errors are the key factors limiting overall system performance.
