Precision current source

Posted on Feb 19, 2013

The 2N5457 and PN2222 bipolar serve as voltage isolation devices between the output and the current sensing resistor, Rl. The LM101 provides a large amount of loop gain to assure that the circuit acts as a current source

For small values of current (<1 mA), the PN2222 and 10K resistor may be eliminated with the output appearing at the source of the 2N5457.
