TIPD164: Offset error for Total Unadjusted Error

Part Number: TIPD164
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADS1248

Dear TI's experts,

i cannot get the results of  the Offset (mV) shown Table 6-8 (

How to obtain, for example from table 6, the value 12 Voltage (ppm) (+/-10 V) and 19 Current (ppm) (+/-25mA) from 0.24 Typ. Could you explaine me which equation have been used to calculate these Offset (mV) vaules in table 6, 7 and 8 for Voltage and Current as ppm.



  • I will be more precise

    According table 6: Voffset,volt= 0.24/20*1e3 = 12ppm and Voffset,current = 0.24/(50e-3*249)*1e3 = 19.2771ppm

    However, the values in table 7 could not established (for current) in these way: Voffset,volt= 1.25/20*1e3 = 62.5ppm and Voffset,current = 1.25/(50e-3*249)*1e3 = 100.4016ppm this value is 88ppm in the table.

    According table 8: Voffset,volt= 0.015/(20*0.2)*1e3 = 3.75ppm and Voffset,current = 0.015/(50e-3*249*0.2)*1e3 = 6.0241ppm. What I don't understand is this last calculation. Why is the voltage ref value +2.5V applied to input AIN0 not been used (Voffset,volt=Voffset,current = 0.015/2.5*1e3 = 6ppm)? 



  • Hi Davut,

    Thanks for your post. 

    The math you have shown for table 7 Voffset,current is correct. I will reach out to the authors of this design to double-confirm and make the necessary updates.

    Table 8 shows the ADS1248 error contributors which is stated to be offset voltage, gain error and gain nonlinearity. That is why Vref is not used in the last calculation.
