±10V Four-Quadrant Multiplying DAC Reference Design


Design files


This TI Precision Verified Design provides the theory, component selection, simulation, PCB design, and measurement details for a dual-supply, four-quadrant MDAC solution that can accurately generate output voltages from -10V to +10V.  By removing the summing stage, this design also serves as reference for designing a simple two-quadrant MDAC circuit.
