Abstract: PRESENTLY AVAILABLE 14 to 16b monolithic DACsl-' are in reality building blocks which require external components such as a stable voltage reference, opamps, and/or passive components for proper operation. Some of these converters are monotonic, but are not linear beyond a 12b accuracy level. This paper will describe a single-chip 16b DAC that requires no external components. The DAC is optimized for several applications within the'industrial, military, and digital audio markets.The design goals called for a …
