I have 900k--100k resistor voltage divider, which works ok - scales down input voltage 10 times. Now I want to offset attenuated value by 1.65, i.e. I apply bias voltage at the bottom of voltage divider. The schematics is easy:
Now if I apply 10 V on Vin I expect to see 2.65 V on the output, but in practice I measure 2.45 V, why is it so?
At first I thought maybe I have my probes set to x1, but no, on x10 I read the same voltage. Have no idea where are my 200 mV lost.
Other thought was that that 220 Ohm resistor is basically in the divider chain, so it is 3 resistor divider 900k, 100k and 200 Ohms, but I checked - since it is orders of magnitude less than other it should take 0.002 Volts, not 0.2.
The question is - where are 200 mV lost and how to make it "right" i.e. give output of 2.65 V?
Just to clarify without offset I get exactly 0.9999999 volts with the divider and x10 probe, I checked resistors multiple times, all of them are practically up to specs, <0.5% off.
