An 18-Bit Digital-to-Analog Converter for High-Performance Digital Audio Applications
Design and implementation details of a new 18-bit digital-to-analog converter are presented. The device is suitable for digital audio applications requiring an unusually large dynamic range, low wide-band noise, high speed, and low distortion. Key design considerations include careful management of thermal effects, a low-glitch switching architecture, and isolation of parasitic noise sources.
