Bias Currents and Reference Circuits
10106081010601 Bias Currents and Reference CircuitsMost, if not all, analog components in a system incorporate or require some form of bias circuit. The fundamental reason for this is simple: ensuring that transistors operate in their desired state, be it in triode or otherwise, across temperature, supply, and manufacturing corners requires a reliable bias reference. What is more, the accuracy of analog systems ultimately hinges on a reference. This is why sensor-interface circuits, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, thermostats, phase-locked loops, linear and switching power supplies, and energy-harnessing microelectronics, to name a few exampl…
