High-performance CMOS D/A-converters suitable for SoC-integration in a digital transceiver face stringent silicon area and power consumption constraints. The resolution of these converters is fundamentally limited by the matching and the finite output impedance of the current sources, circuit and jitter noise, as well as a number of dynamic effects that dominate the spectral purity of the analog output at higher signal frequencies.
