Load Regulation

Load regulation is defined as the change in output voltage as a result of changes in load current. Load regulation for the REF30xx is measured using force and sense contacts as shown in Figure 25. The force and sense lines tied to the contact area of the output pin reduce the impact of contact and trace resistance, resulting in accurate measurement of the load regulation contributed solely by the REF30xx. For applications requiring improved load regulation, use force and sense lines.
