Voltage Reference Bests Zener Diode as
Voltage Reference Bests Zener Diode as Low-Current Bias Source
01.05.2019 Articles

Zeners are commonly used as low-current sources for bias voltage functions, but the proper voltage reference can give the same result and with much-lower dissipation and no performance tradeoffs. There are times when you need to bias a low-current load and simply didn’t want to add another voltage regulator...
