This brief analytically investigates the digital-analog converter (DAC) integrated nonlinearity (INL) with respect to the accuracy of the DAC unit elements. The main novelty of the presented approach is in the application of the Brownian Bridge (BB) process to precisely describe the INL. This method analyzes the thermometer and binary DAC architectures and is the first to prove that their statistical INL properties are different. The INL of the thermometer DAC is represented as a one… CONTINUE READING
