Re: Oct 8 - Part I: Sensor Specs 101

NO RATINGS
We have a sensor that has been specified as 0.08% BSL typical (linearilty, hysteresis and repeatability combined) (0.14% BSL max.). What is the mathematical meaning of this?

This is one of those alternate terms used for best-fit straight line. In my slide 12, you'll know it is actually an eye-ball identification. The equation would be similar to slide 11 but slightly more difficult to detemine exactly. This is why suppliers often used the least squares best fit, since it has a mathematical representation. Many suppliers explain their methodology in an application note. You might want to see if this is the case for your supplier.
