Abstract

This report describes a circuit technique for the design of Digital to Analog Converters (DACs) which provides an improved output voltage compliance for pre- cision DACs, typically those with 7-10 bits of resolution. The technique has been used for 7 and 8 bit DACs on a 3GHz bipolar process and produced untrimmed 11 bit linearities at room temperature.
