Understand temp drift in precision DAC

Posted: 30 Oct 2012     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:error  digital-to-analogue converter  temperature drift 

This application note analyses the external influences that introduce error to a precision digital-to-analogue converter (DAC). Focus will be on temperature drift. This error is recognised as part of a DAC's error budget. The article discusses the error factors introduced by both the data converter and the voltage reference. After understanding the sources of error, it then provides the calculations required to specify the data converter and that will compensate for the error and meet a system's target specifications.
