The offset-voltage compensation technique is proposed for an accurate current-source circuit. This current source is made of a transistor, a resistor, and operational amplifier feedback in order to achieve a high output resistance as well as high accuracy of a generated current signal. Discrepancy from the ideal value mainly results from the offset voltage of the operational amplifier. The transconductance amplifier is utilised with a feedback loop that is controlled by the switched-capacitor integrator. The proposed technique is incorporated in the light-emitting diode driver circuit applications and successfully verified with hardware measurement.
