Quad independent resistor networks with guaranteed CMRR matching of 0.005 percent
May 11, 2011 // Paul Buckley
Linear Technology has introduced the LT5400, the company's first family of precision matched resistors designed for high performance signal conditioning applications in difference amplifiers, precision dividers, references and bridge circuits.
Three resistor network options are in full production today with resistor ratios of 1:1 and 10:1 quad 10K resistors, quad 100K resistors and dual 10K / dual 100K resistors. Each LT5400 has guaranteed matching of 0.01% from -40°C to 85°C, and 0.0125% from -40 to 125°C. The LT5400 matching is enhanced with “matching for CMRR,” a new metric that guarantees CMRR performance when configured in a difference amplifier circuit. The LT5400 matching for CMRR is only 0.005%, a 2x improvement over independent resistors with 0.01% matching.
As a replacement for discrete resistors, the small LT5400 MSOP package minimizes thermal gradients, and ensures consistent conditions over time and temperature for all four resistors. Since the LT5400 is based on conventional silicon fabrication and assembly, it is relatively insensitive to shock, vibration, humidity and temperature extremes. A high temperature option is available that is fully specified from -55 to 150°C. With its robustness, the LT5400 is suitable for instrumentation and test equipment in heavy industrial, military and automotive environments. Standard production processes ensure LT5400 availability with consistently short lead times.
Samples and production quantities of the LT5400 are now available and prices start at $3.49 each in 1,000-piece quantities. Additional options with different resistor values will be available soon.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
