Electrical Characteristics
Note 1: Absolute Maximum Ratings indicate limits beyond which damage to the device may occur. Operating Ratings indicate conditions for which the device is
functional, but do not guarantee specific performance limits. Electrical Characteristics state DC and AC electrical specifications under particular test conditions which
guarantee specific performance limits. This assumes that the device is within the Operating Ratings. Specifications are not guaranteed for parameters where no limit
is given, however, the typical value is a good indication of device performance.

Note 6: The maximum junction temperature of the LM3914 is 100˚C. Devices must be derated for operation at elevated temperatures. Junction to ambient thermal
resistance is 55˚C/W for the molded DIP (N package).
Definition of Terms
Accuracy: The difference between the observed threshold
voltage and the ideal threshold voltage for each comparator.
Specified and tested with 10V across the internal voltage
divider so that resistor ratio matching error predominates
over comparator offset voltage.
Adjust Pin Current: Current flowing out of the reference
adjust pin when the reference amplifier is in the linear region.
Comparator Gain: The ratio of the change in output current
(I
) to the change in input voltage (V

duce it for a comparator in the linear region.
Dropout Voltage: The voltage measured at the current
source outputs required to make the output current fall by
10%.
Input Bias Current: Current flowing out of the signal input
when the input buffer is in the linear region.

LED Current Regulation: The change in output current
over the specified range of LED supply voltage (V
measured at the current source outputs. As the forward
voltage of an LED does not change significantly with a small
change in forward current, this is equivalent to changing the
voltage at the LED anodes by the same amount.
Line Regulation: The average change in reference output
voltage over the specified range of supply voltage (V

Offset Voltage: The differential input voltage which must be
