ZHCSPK8A December 2021 – August 2022 REF35
Thermal hysteresis is measured with the REF35 soldered to a PCB, similar to a real-world application. Thermal hysteresis for the device is defined as the change in output voltage after operating the device at 25°C, cycling the device through the specified temperature range, and returning to 25°C. The PCB was baked at 150°C for 30 minutes before thermal hysteresis was measured. Use Equation 2 to calculate the thermal hysteresis:
The graphs below show the typical thermal hysteresis distribution across various temperature ranges in two cycles.
