Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry
full-scale value, nominal (of an analog-to-digital converter or a digital-to-analog converter) (VFSnom or IFSnom)
An analog value derived from the nominal full‑scale range:
- for a unipolar converter, VFSnom = VFSRnom; (IFSnom = IFSRnom)
- for a bipolar converter, VFSnom = ½ VFSRnom; (IFSnom = ½ IFSRnom).
NOTE 1 In some data sheets, this analog value is used as a reference value for adjustment procedures or as a rounded value for the full-scale range.
NOTE 2 In place of the letter symbols "VFSnom" and "IFSnom", the abbreviation "FS(nom)" is commonly used.
