    It might be a bit off topic but is it worth mentioning why we have strange values of voltage references like 1.024 V and 4.096 V etc. Also why zeners have the values they have e.g. 2.4, 3.3, 5.1,7.5 and the importance of the 5.6 Volt zener.
    Thanks

    Any value be needed? So in paralel you can create needed value very simply. Only but not Zener.
    Zener may be amplified to needed value. So 1024&4096 is for simplyfi calculations at ADC, DAC - there are two in the degree of N (N=10...12...)
