CHARACTERIZATION OF DIGITAL-ANALOG CONVERTERS STATIC CHARACTERISTICS OUTPUT-INPUT CHARACTERISTICS Ideal input-output characteristic of a 3-bit DAC
DEFINATION Resolution of the DAC is equal to the number of bits in the applied digital input word. The full
A simple two-transistor current source.

I ref I C1 = = IC 2 2 1+ F
if F is large, the collector current of Q2 is nearly equal to the reference current:

5.2 Active Filters (CONT.) Band-Reject Sections :
AV ( R 2C 2 s 2 +1) V2 H ( s) = = 2 22 V1 R C s + 2 RC ( 2 AV ) s +1
In the above equation we observe that o = r = 1/RC and the Q of the notch is determined by the gain AV = 1 + Rb/Ra of the OpAmp stage. I
