The REF30xx is a precision,low-power, low-dropout voltage, reference family available in a tiny 3-pin SOT-23 package. TheREF30xx offers excellent temperature drift and initial accuracy while operating at a quiescentcurrent of 42 µA (typical).
The low power consumption and the relatively high precision make the REF30xx veryattractive for loop-powered industrial applications such as pressure and temperature transmitterapplications. The REF30xx is easy to use in intrinsically safe and explosion-proof applicationsbecause it does not require a load capacitor to be stable. The REF30xx is specified over theextended industrial temperature range of –40°C to +125°C.
The REF30xx operates with supplies within 1 mV of output voltage under zero-loadconditions. Engineers can use the low dropout, small size, and low power consumption of the REF30xxin portable and battery-powered applications.
