[stag_columns][stag_one_half]Here we have only two switched reference voltages: 0 and 1.0000. (As we shall show later, we can tweak the high end even if this voltage is not precise.) Here we have added a number of flip-flops such as CMOS types 4013 (which come two to a chip). [/stag_one_half] [stag_one_half_last]The high end tweak on the other hand, may use any of a number of techniques. But this involves smaller adjustments, such as small resistors or small capacitors. These may well not be actual trim-pots, but slightly different fixed components. [/stag_one_half_last] [/stag_columns]
