Last Updated:

*G

AN64275 discusses several methods to increase the resolution of the DACs available in the PSoC® 3 and PSoC 5LP families. These methods can be used to extend the resolution up to 12 bits. An example application is supplied to demonstrate most of these concepts. A library is also included that implements three of the methods as PSoC Creator™ components.

This following video is a quick synopses of this application note.
