Digital-to-analog converters (DACs) used in conventional vector generators produce "glitches" (brief transitions to undesired output values) during high-order bit transitions, e.g., from binary 011111---1 to 100000---0. These glitches may be removed from the output signal by the deglitcher circuit shown in Fig. 1.
