11.1 Device Support

11.1.1 Device Nomenclature Definition of Terms

    Input offset voltage:That voltage which must be applied between the input terminals to bias the unloaded output in the linear region.
    Input offset current:The difference in the currents at the input terminals when the unloaded output is in the linear region.
    Input bias current:The absolute value of the average of the two input currents.
    Input resistance:The ratio of the change in input voltage to the change in input current on either input with the other grounded.
    Large signal voltage gain:The ratio of the specified output voltage swing to the change in differential input voltage required to produce it.
    Shunt gain:The ratio of the specified output voltage swing to the change in differential input voltage required to produce it with the output tied to the V+ terminal of the IC. The load and power source are connected between the V+ and V terminals, and input common-mode is referred to the V terminal.
    Common-mode rejection:The ratio of the input voltage range to the change in offset voltage between the extremes.
    Supply-voltage rejection:The ratio of the specified supply-voltage change to the change in offset voltage between the extremes.
    Line regulation:The average change in reference output voltage over the specified supply voltage range.
    Load regulation:The change in reference output voltage from no load to that load specified.
    Feedback sense voltage: The voltage, referred to V, on the reference feedback terminal while operating in regulation.
    Reference amplifier gain:The ratio of the specified reference output change to the change in feedback sense voltage required to produce it.
    Feedback current: The absolute value of the current at the feedback terminal when operating in regulation.
    Supply current:The current required from the power source to operate the amplifier and reference with their outputs unloaded and operating in the linear range.
