Abstract

The circuit utilizes minimum components and low standby power to provide a fixed reference level. The level is generated in such a manner that it minimizes the effects due to temperature, VBE and resistance variations. Furthermore, the circuit is capable of sinking very high current when the clamped level tends to be pulled up.
