ARCHITECTURE
NYQUIST RATE
OVERSAMPLING
INTERPOLATING
• BINARY WEIGHTED
• Fast
• Less complex circuitry
• Prone to mismatch errors
• THERMOMETER CODED
• Easy matching
• Monotonic
• Better INL & DNL than binary weighted
• Slower than binary weighted
• DIRECT ENCODED
• Low speed due to RC delays
• Resistor matching difficult
• HYBRID
• Contains segments of various other architectures
• ALGORITHMIC
• Slow
• High real estate & power consumption

BINARY WEIGHTED DAC
• CURRENT STEERING
• Consumes less real estate
• Fast for resolution < 10bits
• High power efficiency
• R - 2R LADDER
• High power consumption
• Good impedance matching
• Prone to glitch problems
• CHARGE REDISTRIBUTION DAC
• Slow due to RC delays
• Finite bandwidth of opamp

THERMOMETER CODED DAC
• Converts binary input into thermometer code
• N binary inputs give 2n – 1 thermometer coded bits
• Reference elements are equal in size thus aiding matching of the various elements
• Monotonic in nature with INL & DNL better than binary weighted DACs

HYBRID DAC
• Employs a combination of the afore-mentioned architectures
• Hence includes the advantages of the respective architecture

DOUBLE SEGMENTED THERMOMETER CODED
WITH BINARY WEIGHTED CURRENT STEERING
• For the given specifications, the Double Segmented Thermometer Coded with Binary Weighted
Current Steering hybrid architecture is used.
• It promises to meet the required SFDR and Speed requirements.
• Double segmented is proposed for reduced area
