I am currently building a library of SPICE simulation models that is going to include resistor arrays.
These arrays exhibits both absolute tolerances and relative tolerances. Usually, the relative characteristics are better than the absolute characteristics. For example, the 4 resistors of the LT5400 from Linear have an absolute tolerance of +/-7.5% and a relative tolerance of +/-0.010%. Same story for the temperature drift : they have an absolute drift of 25ppm/K and a ratio temperature drift of 0,2ppm/K.
I would like to model these arrays in order to estimate the impact of temperature drift and component tolerances on my signal acquisition chain. For this purpose, I already found those two links that are useful for discrete components : Simulating component tolerances and Estimating temperature drift effects. However, they won't help me on how to model relative tolerances and relative drifts.
- How can I take into account in my SPICE model both absolute tolerances and relative tolerances of resistor arrays ?
PS: there is a model of the LT5400 in LTSpice, but I have not found a way to access the source model. Thus, I have no idea how to use it in monte-carlo analysis or temperature stepping.
