Figure B-3

show the wiper resistance
for V
voltages of 5.5, 3.0, 1.8 Volts. These graphs

(V

resistance increases. These graphs also show the
different resistance characteristics of the NMOS and
PMOS transistors that make up the wiper switch. This
is demonstrated by the wiper code resistance curve,
which does not mirror itself around the mid-scale code
(wiper code = 128).
So why is the R
graphs showing the maximum
W
resistance at about mid-scale (wiper code = 128) and
the R
graphs showing the issue at code 160?

This requires understanding low-voltage transistor
characteristics as well as how the data was measured.

as the wiper switch node voltages determine the R
