No, the drawing is correct.  The small inductors represent the wires between the die and the pins on the IC.  The bypass capacitor is attached to the pins, not the die directly.


Best,

Steve

Vikas, Thanks for a simple and clear explanation. I agree with Zeuch about the bypass cap. connectivity shown in Figure 3 - it should be across Ref out and GND.

Vikas, Thanks for your explanation--I think I already understood this and your explanation was still helpful. But I think figure 3 should show the capacitor connected directly to Ref A and Ref B rather than as shown.
