Precision programmable current source uses two ICs

Precision programmable current source uses two ICs

By Stefano Salvatori & Pietro Oliva from Edn.com:

This Design Idea mates a precision current source IC with precision difference amp chips to create a programmable current source or sink.

The resistor-programmable current source/sink in Figure 1 illustrates the basic topology, taking advantage of tightly matched on-chip resistor ratios instead of relying on absolute tolerances.
