App note: Tutorial selecting the optimum voltage reference

App note from Maxim Integrated guiding you when selecting voltage references. Link here

What could be more basic than a voltage reference – a simple, constant reference voltage? As with all design topics, there are tradeoffs. This article discusses the different types of voltage references, their key specifications, and the design tradeoffs, including accuracy, temperature-independence, current drive capability, power dissipation, stability, noise, and cost.
