This paper treats the problem of designing an optimal size for a lookup table used for sensor linearization. In small em- bedded systems the lookup table must be reduced to a minimum in order to reduce the memory footprint and intermedi- ate table values are estimated by linear interpolation. Since interpolation introduces an estimation uncertainty that in- creases with the sparseness of the lookup table there is a trade-off between lookup table size and estimation precision. This work will present a theory for finding the minimum allowed size of a lookup table that does not affect the overall precision, i.e. the overall precision is determined by the lookup table entries’ precision, not by the interpolation error.
