Digital-to-analog converter biasing control circuit

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4631518.

A device for controlling the output voltage range of a digital-to-analog (D/A) converter of the type wherein the converter output voltage range is proportional to the magnitude of an applied bias current. The device comprises means to sample and store a selected converter output voltage, means to produce a variable current of magnitude proportional to the stored converter output voltage, and a source of constant current. The constant current and the variable current are summed and applied to the converter as the bias current. The converter output voltage range is dependent on the variable portion of the applied bias current which is in turn dependent on the stored, selected converter output voltage.
