A temperature stable current reference source with programmable output


Conference Paper

© 1992 IEEE. A current reference source is presented, that achieves stability over temperature with a neural network architecture and floating gate devices. It allows post fabrication adjustment to a user specified output value. Tuning of floating gate devices is also used to accurately cancel temperature gradients at various temperatures. The circuit allows to approximate arbitrary functions over temperature. A first implementation for limited temperature range yielded an accuracy of about 1.5%. Simulation results of an improved version are presented.
