Current-mode sigma-delta digital-to-analog converter

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #7956782.

In general, this disclosure is directed to a differential current-mode sigma-delta digital-to-analog converter (SD DAC) with improved accuracy and reduced offset and gain errors. In one example, the SD DAC may include a current source configured to provide a differential current. The SD DAC may further include a switching network configured to adjust a polarity of the differential current according to a bit within the bit-stream to produce a differential current signal. The SD DAC may further include a current-to-voltage converter configured to convert the differential current signal to a differential voltage signal. In additional examples, the differential current source may include one or more source degeneration resistances. In further examples, the current-to-voltage converter may include a fully-differential operational amplifier. A low pass filter may be included within the current-to-voltage converter and/or coupled to the output of the current-to-voltage converter.
